2018 Khorana who worked with Yiping Qi. “I improve plant genome editing tools using molecular biology techniques to simplify genetic manipulation of crop plants. Specifically, these tools like base editors and CRISPR based tools are for activation and/or repression of targeted genes.”
Sandesh worked on applying Machine Learning to control quantum dot systems. He developed an API for interfacing with current experimental setups, to enable a machine learning based approach for automated tuning of gates in a quantum dot architecture.
“The project is to synthesize faces of different ages using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). The goal is to see if by using these augmented faces, whether age estimation algorithms can be improved and by how much.”
