NSL Student Garima Bajwa Wins Department of Computer Science and Engineering Outstanding Doctoral Student Award
Garima received her bachelor’s degree in technology, electronics and communication engineering from Mody Institute of Technology and Science in India. She learned about Dr. Dantu’s research on a new 9-1-1 software system using smart phone technology while she was earning her master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada. She came to UNT specifically to work with Dr. Dantu and joined his group in Fall 2011.
She is involved in interdisciplinary research including Computer Science, Neuroscience and Signal Processing. Her doctoral research has been focused on shifting the paradigm of existing brain-computer-interfaces from just ‘control’ to ‘monitor, control, enhance, and restore’ in three main areas: healthcare, transportation safety and cryptography. In her free time, she loves to dig deep into things that grab her attention, spend time hiking and exploring nature. She is strongly influenced by her parents and major professor Dr. Dantu to pursue a career in research. Garima loves her UNT family here who keeps her grounded and motivated.
