Hi Surya, I had a look through the current scipy.signal tickets for ones
that would be not too complex to get started with:
#1621: a suggestion for performance improvement of fftconvolve(), with a
patch that can be adapted. Would need some benchmarking for different size
input arrays.
#1637: extra normalization option for lombscargle(). Would be useful and
not too hard probably.
#1448: bug that should be straightforward to fix.
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/337: some pending improvements that
could use a check, especially of change 4 (use of rfftn). Testing with
various shapes/values of input would be good to do there.

That hopefully gives you somewhere to start. I recommend to just dive in.
Once you make some pull requests on Github you'll quickly get a feel for
what's required of code added to scipy in terms of code style, tests,
documentation, etc.
