Statement of Purpose My interest in Computer Science really began when we were introduced to C++ in our School in Class XII'th (2004). Programming became a pleasure as I implemented a Space Fighter Game (in MFC ) and a full-fledged Snake Game (using BGI Graphics) from scratch. My experiences in programming towards the end of my school had given me great motivation to pursue Computer Science Majors as part of Engineering. Towards engineering, I took the prestigious IIT-JEE entrance examination. I secured a rank in the top 1% out of 100,000 candidates who took the exam and I joined the Instiute of technology, Benaras Hindu University for my bachelors in Computer Science. My passion and interest in computers was aptly satiated here. During my first year itself, I collaborated with two senior undergraduates and created "Voice Command Operated Electrical Appliances" that was recognized widely as it won the second prize in Technex(explain in a short phrase what Technex is) . The experience was instrumental in shaping my ideas on the importance of team work for meaningful scientific contributions.This was also corroborated by the fact that we were selected to represent our institute in the ACM ICPC Asia Regional contest. . Here again my curiosity and interest in programming got me interacting with my seniors and with their help we created "Voice Command Operated Electrical Appliances" and won the Second Prize for our project in Technex in my first year. Working on the project I truly understood the significance of team work and collaboration. In my second year we participated in the online Pre-Regionals contest for ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC) and were selected to represent our Institute in the ACM ICPC Asia Regionals. In a quest to widen my perspectives on Computer Science, I worked with the The Formal-V Research Group at Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur( IIT Kharagpur) during the summer break of 2005. It laid the foundations of important concepts of Concurrency, Temporal Logics and semi-formal verification techniques to verify hardware designs. In particular I learned how hardware emulation can be used to accelerate verification. I was introduced to the area of formal verification working as summer intern with The Formal-
