      About myself

I am Gundavarapu Mallikarjuna Rao, a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering with 31 years of experience in academia. I hold two Master's degrees - M.E. in Digital Systems from Osmania University (1992) and M.Tech in CSE from JNTUH (2012) in Hyderabad. My extensive experience in academia spans across various roles including lecturer, senior lecturer, associate professor, and professor. My research interests lie in Pattern Recognition, GPU Computing, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. Over the years, I have been actively involved in various committees such as Departmental Development Management Committee, Departmental BOS, and Project Coordinator. I have also served as the Dean of FDP and Outreach activity at GRIET and acted as a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for TCS-TBU (Technological Business Unit) and TCS-MBU (Manufacturing Business Unit) remote internship projects at GRIET. In recognition of my contributions, I was awarded a grant of 7.5 lakhs from AICTE for "Parallel Computing and Operating System Lab" MODROB in 2012. Furthermore, I serve as an Editorial Board Member for the International Journal of Science and Engineering (IJSE) with p-ISSN: 2086-5023. I also received training from AICTE to become an IDEA Lab Tech Guru. Currently, I serve as the SPOC and Coordinator for Smart India Hackathon (SIH) at GRIET and TECH GURU for AICTE IDEA Lab of GRIET.
