Department / Institute
Electrical Engineering


Kanishkan Vadivel is Researcher in the Electronic Systems group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His early research interest includes developing hardware architecture for energy efficient and high-performance computing, and compiler based code-generation techniques.

Kanishkan's current research includes optimal code-generation for explicit datapath architecture(CGRA) and part of MNEMOSENE project aimed to demonstrate a new computation-in-memory architecture based on resistive devices.

Designing smart and hasty machine is hard.! I take up a challenge of designing such machines with necessary tool support for usability and optimize them for energy efficiency


Kanishkan Vadivel obtained his Master’s degree in Embedded Sytems from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2017 and started as a researcher in Feb 2019. Kanishkan received a bachelor degree from Coimbatore Institute of Technology(India) and has 3.5years of industrial experience in Embedded systems from Tata Engineering(India) and in Arm Ltd(Cambridge, UK).
