Mr. Varun Kelkar

Champaign IL

I grew up in Pune and currently live in the small town of Champaign, Illinois ~200 km south of Chicago, USA. I do research in the field of computational imaging, currently pursuing a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). We work on making imaging better by integrating advanced signal processing and AI algorithms with imaging physics. I completed my masters from UIUC in 2019 and B.Tech in Engineering Physics from IIT Madras. 

I am an Indian classical music enthusiast and have been trained Hindusthani music on the harmonium. I have also dabbled a bit in Carnatic violin when I lived in Chennai, (but didn't get beyond playing some squaky notes!). I'm also interested in food, and reading/watching about world history.

The study of market/industry behavior, competitor benchmarking analysis helped me present and analyze key takeaways for discussion with the executive team.

Ms. Shreya Dokhale


Hi my name is Shreya Dokhale and I am a student researcher through an accelerated advanced program of research offered within my high school. I have done multiple research projects within the healthcare field, particularly focused on how certain pharmaceutical treatments can be effectively administered to patients with a wide range of disorders. Currently I just finished an academic research style paper that looks at The Efficacy of Buprenorphine as a Treatment in Opioid Overdose Patients in Comparison to other Pharamceutical Medications. Over this summer, I hope to work with a mentor to either continue this project or develop another within the healthcare/biopharma/biotech/medicine and am seeking a mentor to help guide me through the research process.
