Welcome to my webpage



I am an Assistant Professor of Instruction in Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University. Before that I was a postdoctoral scholar at Temple University under the supervision of Professor Krishna Kant . I have completed my PhD from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I had the pleasure to be advised by Professor Asis Nasipuri during the course of my PhD.

Research Interests

  • About me: I spent the first eighteen years of my life in a small quiet town named Midnapore in the southern part of the state of West Bengal in India. My family consists of my parents and my two elder brothers, both married. I have also spent four years at the "City of Joy" Kolkata where I have completed my undergraduate study at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jadavpur University in 2008.
