Research Interest

  • He has passion for control of dynamical system remains his life long love as he pursues the same in a role of a teacher with new suite of software/hardware/sensors. His foray in networking now has led to a Ph.D. thesis of Mr. Sunil K. Agarwal in wireless sensor networks as an automated protocol for cluster head (CH) election and MS thesis of Mr. Harshit Pandey in the field of multi-layered networks and processes modelled as tensors.
  • His latest interest is in biological computation, oncological multimedia processing, MRI, EEG and ECG processing along with his ICMR senior research fellow (SRF) Ms. Arti Taneja (Currently on her Post-doc assignment in Lehigh University, PA, USA), Research Scholars Mrs. Anju Mishra, Ms. Shanu Sharma, Mr. K. D. Shrivasatava etc. in a lab titled Health Analytics and Data Vizualization Environment (HAVE) he established jointly with Prof. Rajiv Janardhanan in 2018. Some of their recent papers have been accepted in Multimedia and Tools (MMT) by Springer and in conferences on cancer related issues all around the world included highly rated conference HCI and ISBI 2018. In particular his emphasis is on developing software tools for affordable early detection of different reproductive cancers, heart malignancies, mental anomalies using EEG and EcoG signals. He has been helping biologists and pathologists by designing and implementing user interfaces friendly to their way of working and generating innovative results for next generation of analysis for bio-professionals. He truly believes that a multi-way productive collaboration with biologists, public health professionals and clinical scientists with bio-informatics and bio-computational suite of tools will lead to next knowledge revolution for humanity towards better health facilitation. He has multiple Indian software copyrights approved.
