As fate would have it, Shubha’s education led her to more than a PhD. While she was working on her doctorate, she discovered that her advisor’s advisor was actually the founder of Synaptics—Carver Mead. With its bright future, brilliant minds, and personal legacy, it’s no wonder why Synaptics appealed to Shubha.
One of the most exciting parts of Shubha’s job is the great variety of roles and projects that she can find herself involved with as a member of the cross-functional Systems-Architecture Team. Arriving at 9 AM, her tasks vary from coding-intensive algorithm design and testing to days spent optimizing hardware sensing systems in support of divisions across Synaptics.
