Arvind Prasanna is a Master's student in the Electrical Engineering Department at University at Buffalo, the State University of New York. He is currently a Research Assistant, conducting research towards a dissertation on rate control of compressed sensed videos at the Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems Laboratory (WINES). His advisor is Prof. Tommaso Melodia. He received his Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree from Visvesvaraya Technological University, Bangalore, India in 2008. He is the recipient of the “Best Project” award from the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering for his undergraduate project on lossless compression and decompression.
