About:

Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronics Communication Engineering, Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati. I received the BE degree in electronics and communication engineering from the University of Burdwan, West Bengal, the ME degree in electrical engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from IIT Kharagpur, in 2015. From 2014-2015, I served as an Assistant Professor(on contract) in the Dept. of EEE, NIT Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. I have joined IIIT Guwahati on 18 June, 2015. I am a member of the IEEE.
