“My vision for SRM AP is an inter-disciplinary environment that stimulates active, engaged learning and cutting edge research. We challenge our students to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly, and develop into thoughtful global citizens and leaders. Learning through discovery and interaction is more powerful and enduring than listening passively to lectures. We seek to equip our students with the cognitive tools to adapt to and seize opportunities offered by a rapidly changing world. Most of all, we stand apart with a network of associations with esteemed institutions around the world, so that students make their mark in a connected world.”
June 2012 – August 2013 | Assistant Professor – KIIT University, Bhubaneswar

The work on Information Theoretic Security involves determination of secret channel capacity for various channel models and under various channel states and fading conditions. The work also entails designing of practical codes for implementation of the analytical results.
The research in IoT was so far focussed on building an independent IoT Network (patented) – specifically in the 220MHz range in order not to overcrowd the traditional ISM band. Currently the research involves implementation and prototyping various smart technologies as application of IoT such as smart agriculture, smart waste management, smart street lighting, smart locks, Bluetooth tracking and so on.
Short Range Autonomous Vehicle study involves study of LIDAR technology and its usage in implementation of Autonomous vehicles in small restricted areas such as a campus, gated community, airports and so on and trying to find a cheaper alternative to LIDAR technology for Autonomous Vehicles.
