Dr. Nalin Kumar Sharma received his Ph.D. in Control and Automation from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology in 2018. He is credited to introduce a new concept in control theory, known as "Discrete-time Higher Order Sliding Mode". For his Ph.D. research work, he received “Young Scientist International Travel Grant” from Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India and "Institute Travel Grant" from IIT Delhi to present his research work in conferences in Malta and Australia, respectively.

After his PhD, he served as the postdoctoral research fellow in the Mechatronics research group of Systems and Control division, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, from 2018 to 2020. There, he was involved in developing intelligent transportation systems and control theory to improve the energy efficiency of vehicles driving in miscellaneous traffic.

He joined DAIICT as an Assistant Professor in 2021. His current interest is in developing optimal and robust control techniques for cyber-physical systems, particularly for intelligent transportation systems and robotics.
