How Can We Help?

For Prospective PhD Students

I am actively recruiting talented and motivated PhD students. If you are applying to Columbia University for a PhD in EE, and find my work interesting, send me an email. Include your CV in the email. Extensive prior experience in analog/RF circuit design is not an absolute necessity. I am more interested in a strong grasp of the basic sciences—Physics and Math in particular. Prior experience in conducting organized research of any form is a plus. Please include the words “prospective student” in the subject line to assist my email filters.

For BS/MS Students Interested in Research Projects

CoSMIC lab actively engages BS and MS students in research projects taken for credit (E3998 or E6001). These research projects can be extremely rewarding, and greatly enhance the student’s employment prospects. Please see the “People” page to get a sense of where our former BS/MS students were placed after graduation. Successful BS/MS research projects, however, require the student to be hard-working , self-motivated and driven. A time investment that is one semester at a minimum and two semesters typically is also required to enable successful completion of a project that actively contributes to the student’s resume and CoSMIC lab research activities.

If you are interested in participating in a research project, please take a look at our papers as well as some examples of successful projects below to get a sense of our research, and send an email to Prof. Krishnaswamy with your resume/CV attached. Please include a list of courses taken at Columbia as well as the grades obtained in them. Please include the phrase “BS/MS project” in the subject line to assist my email filters.
