I attained my undergraduate degree from the University of Burdwan (India) with a BEng (Honours) specialising in Applied Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering. During my BEng project, I designed a system called Skin Response Meter, which could be used for indicating the stress level of a person.
After graduation, I moved to the UK for pursuing a Master degree in Control Systems at the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, the University of Sheffield. My dissertation topic was about designing a clinical decision support system (CDSS), for critically ill patients in CICU. I finished this course with distinction. By the end of this course, I earned a PhD scholarship (Grantham Scholarship) to continue my research primarily based at the same department.
My PhD research topic is Computational simulation of plant-soil-water processes for design of agricultural production. This is an interdisciplinary research under the supervision of Professor Visakan Kadirkamanathan. My co-supervisors are Professor Steve Banwart (Department of Geography) and Professor David Beerling (Department of Animal and Plant Sciences). The details about my research can also be found at http://grantham.sheffield.ac.uk/training/projects/computational-simulation-of-plant-soil-water-processes-for-design-of-agricultural-production/
In addition to my regular research work, I have several other academic roles to play as a Grantham Scholar. These roles mainly include – engagement with policy makers and campaign for the significance of good research in building a sustainable future.
- Model Integration
- Data-driven modelling
- Fuzzy logic based controller design
- Medical electronics
- Big data analysis
I have been inducted as Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA), to undertake the teaching related activities like laboratory demonstration for the undergraduate students. Apart from this, I am also a trained Associate Tutor and may undertake laboratory demonstration activities at the department level.
- I organised a public seminar ‘Building UK Soils’ on behalf of the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Future in July 2015. The highlight of the event can be viewed at https://storify.com/granthamcsf/building-uk-soils-seminar
- As a Grantham Scholar, I am actively involved in many public engagement programs. For the latest update about these events, visit http://grantham.sheffield.ac.uk/
I have volunteered for the ‘We Are International’ campaign on various occasions. This campaign is led by the University of Sheffield for highlighting the importance of international students coming to UK. The details about my roles in this campaign can also be found at http://www.weareinternational.org.uk.
Recently, my name has also been registered for the Sheffield Alumni volunteering. This kind of volunteering involves a wide range of activities enlisted on http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/alumni/volunteering.
