I am a Research Associate at LSBU working in AI application on microwave imaging for breast lesion classification. I completed my PhD (September 2016-November 2019) from LSBU on a project with the Centre for Bioengineering research group. I worked as a junior and senior research fellow (March 2013-August 2016) at Jadavpur University within the scheme of University Grants Commission Basic Scientific Research (UGC-BSR) fellowship. I received my Bachelor's (BE) and Master's (MTech) Degree from The University of Burdwan and West Bengal University of Technology, India in 2009 and 2012 respectively in Computer Science and Engineering.

I contributed over 25 research papers in renowned journals and conferences along with Patent and many more under review. My research interest includes human physiological motion analysis, localisation, gait analysis, Ultrawide Band (UWB) radar signal processing, machine learning, pattern recognition, extensive data analysis, deep learning, image processing, and Computer-aided Diagnosis using Machine Learning/AI for smart health. I am also involved with energy optimization and renewable energy research in smart buildings.

I am endorsed by the Royal Academy of Engineering, and an active member of the European Society of Radiology and IEEE.

I am Topic Editor of MDPI Sustainability and serve as an ad-hoc reviewer in many journals including Pattern Recognition, IEEE Transaction on Vehicular Technology, ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, MDPI Remote Sensing, MDPI Sensors, IEEE Access, EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing.
