Welcome to my webpage



I am a postdoctoral scholar in Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University, under the supervision of Professor Krishna Kant . Before that I 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

  • Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Networks: Energy-aware routing, power control, dynamic channel selection, dynamic sampling rate adaptation, localization, experimental testbed development and validation. (Tinyos codes are available in https://github.com/Amitangshu/)
  • Perishable Food Quality Sensing and Communication: Building cyber-physical systems for perishable food logistics, sensing and communication through food medium, policy management and information sharing, agility and reconfigurability.
  • Disaster Management Networks: Reliable sensing and communications, smartphone based ad-hoc networks, energy-aware forwarding, data gathering and analytics.
  • Wireless-Optical Access Networks: Network architecture planning and setup, joint routing and channel selection schemes, quality of service, power efficiency.
  • Multihop Wireless Networks: Routing, medium access control, cross-layer optimizations, mod- eling and performance evaluation.
  • Others: Content centric networks, Data Center Networks, Enterprise Networks.
  • A brief overview of my research philosphy and directions can be found in my Research Statement.

  • 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.
