Brief Biography
I received the PhD degree in  Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo, NY, in February 2004. Prior to that, I did MTech in Optoelectronics and Optical Communication from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, in 1998, and BTech in Radiophysics and Electronics from  University of Calcutta, in 1993.

From 1993 to 1997 and during the first half of 1999, I worked in different telecommunication companies in India as a research and development engineer. During the first half of 2004 I worked with the wireless networks group at  ISTI-CNR, in Pisa, Italy, through a European research fellowship. From Fall 2004 to Fall 2006 I was with the New Jersey Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor of  Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been working in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Delhi since January 2007.

My research interests are broadly in communication networks, with emphasis on performance modeling and analysis. Current directions include energy harvesting sensor networks, broadband wireless access and routing, cognitive/white-space access networks, smart grid networks, and IoT communications.

Notice to the prospective doctoral research students (2019-20, July entry)

I am looking to recruit ONE or TWO doctoral research students for working broadly in the area of Next-generation wireless communications (IoT communications, energy harvesting communications, QoS/QoE support over wireless links, smart grid networks, cross-layer optimization). The students are expected to have degrees in Electrical Communication/Computer Engineering or allied areas with strong mathematical background. Interest/capability of working on hardware systems (implementation/experimentation using SDR/USRP kits and embedded hardware systems) will be added advantage.

(i) Regular IIT Delhi PhD: Selection process will follow regular shortlisting criteria in the Department of Electrical Engineering/ Bharti School of Telecommunication at IIT Delhi.

(ii) IIT Delhi - University of Queensland (IITD-UQ) dual-PhD: A tentative research project details is available at: https://www.uqidar.org/research/research-projects/ (project # UQIDAR 00161), which is subject to be fine-tuned. The application link (due date April 14, 2019) is: https://www.uqidar.org/students/how-to-apply/. For further queries, applicant may contact at:
Selection process will be completed by May 7, 2019, the outcome is expected by around June 5, 2019, and the successful students will commence from July 1, 2019.

If your qualification and interests match as stated above, and if you have already applied or planning to apply for admission (i) in the Department of Electrical Engineering and/or Bharti School of Telecommunication at IIT Delhi, or (ii) for the IITD-UQ program, you may contact me over email with detailed resume - including course-wise grades/marks, research background, and publications, for further discussions.
