Biodata
There are several versions here (different amount of pomposity and verbosity) ! Use the smallest one you need.

A very very brief biodata - good for knowing what I do

Subrat Kar teaches at the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Delhi.



A very brief biodata

Subrat Kar teaches Telecommunication Networks, specially Photonics Networking and Switching at the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Delhi. He has been there since 1994.




A brief biodata - good as a pre-talk introduction
 

Subrat Kar graduated with Honours in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani in 1987. He holds a Doctoral Degree in Electrical Communication Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (1991). He has been with the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (1991-1994).
In 1994, he joined Indian Institute of Technology Delhi where he is presently a Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering.  He holds the Ram and Sita Sabnani Chair Professorship at IIT Delhi and his research areas are in optical communication, switching, access technologies, telecom protocols, embedded systems and high speed networks.



A not-so-brief biodata - good for the brief blurb at the end of a paper.

A oh-so-long biodata

Subrat Kar was born in the city of Cuttack, Orissa, India. School was wherever his parents, both Doctors, were transferred. In this way, he went through several missionary schools such as St.Josephs' Berhampur, Stewarts School Cuttack, then Kendriya Vidyalaya, Sambalpur - he completed high-school (with most of his subjects taken in the hindi medium) from the Kendriya Vidyalaya, Berhampur. At Khallikote College (Berhampur University), he topped the University twice, first at the Pre-Univ and then at the Intermediate Science exams.

Between school and College, he illustrated his father's Oriya translation of Kenneth Grahame's book, The Wind in the Willows (Bisama Banarey Batasa). His father, Dr.P.K.Kar, is widely respected as having translated all of Jim Corbett's books and some of Kenneth Anderson's books into Oriya - a task in which his mother Dr Sudharani Kar was the able amanuensis. He also used this time to read Asterix/ Tintin/ Calvin and Hobbes/ Punch/the Gideon Bible/the Quran/the Bhagavad Gita/Ballantyne/Defoe/Dickens/Dumas
and speed-read his way through all the books in his father's extensive personal collection of books (about 4500 books at last count), to learn enough Sanskrit to read the Panchatantra, and to master his skills with a catapult his father hand-made for him, a Rolleiflex camera from his father and a Agfa Click-III camera donated by Dr.Madhu Khadanga, a bow-and-arrow set from Nagaland and a .22 air rifle his father bought him. He was helped in all these worthwhile childhood efforts by a worthwhile peer-friend-brother, Dr.Chandan Das (4 Mar 1966 - 17 July 2017), who wrote poetry, worked on his magnum opus with our collective encouragement since 1970, translated Fakir Mohan Senapati, and tried to capture life in words while he taught English at Sailabala College, Cuttack.

He graduated with Honours in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani in 1987. He holds a Doctoral Degree in Electrical Communication Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (1991). He has been with the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (1991-1994).

Presently he is a Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering
, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi where he is also the Ram and Sita Sabnani Chair Professor. He was instrumental in establishing and heading (2006-2010) the Bharti School of Telecommunication Technology & Management, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi which, as IIT Delhi’s first ever School, runs M.Tech, MS, MBA and PhD (Engg) and PhD( Mgmt) programs. He also established and headed (2006-2010) the Airtel IITD Centre of Excellence in Telecom (AICET) in IIT Delhi which conducts programs in contract research, distance education, pre-incubation and super-internship programs. He is particularly proud of having conceptualized and coordinated the GIPEDI Internship Program since 2007 ( bit.ly/gipedi ).

He is IIT Delhi's nominee / representative on ECMA, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and GreenTouch. He was a member of DOSTI and is about to migrate his membership to the TSDSI.

His research areas are in optical communication, switching, access technologies, telecom protocols, embedded systems and high speed networks. As a member of the Optoelectronics and Optical Communication research group, he works in the area of non-linear optical CDMA networks, free-space optical communication (ground-satellite and inter-satellite) and in ultra-fast optical LSI and fault-tolerant integrated optical switching architectures.
