Rajeevan Arunthavanathan

Rajeevan imageI am a PhD candidate in process engineering under the supervision of Dr. Faisal Khan at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Currently involve in the early fault detection and failure modelling using advance machine learning approaches to fault detection and failure modelling. I have completed my B.Eng in Electrical and Electronics., and M.Sc. in Microelectronics at the University of Northumbria, United Kingdom. I have more than a six years of postgraduate working experience in academia in the area of Control systems and Automation (Classic control and modern control / state space model), Digital Electronics and Embedded System Design (FPGA and Microcontrollers) and Computer Programming (parallel programming OpenMP, Pthread and MPI).
