I am a faculty of DA-IICT, Gandhinagar (India) and am an alumnus of IIT Delhi and IIT Roorkee. I obtained my PhD degree in Physics from IIT Delhi in 1993. Prior to joining DA-IICT in 2003, I worked at Centre for Theoretical Studies at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (India) during 1993-94 followed by the Optical Fiber Group at IIT Delhi (India) till 1996. My main academic interest areas are sensors, Internet of Things, image processing, fiber optics, semiconductor physics, applications of technologies for humanitarian challenges. 

I am a senior member of IEEE, a member of Optica (formerly Optical Society of America) and a member of Optical Society of India. After serving two terms as VP Technical Operations (2020-2023), I am currently the President-elect of IEEE Sensors Council (2024-2025). I was also the Chair of IEEE Conference Publications Committee (2019-2020). I have been the General co-Chair of many international conferences, such as: IEEE APSCON 2023, IEEE R10 HTC 2023, IEEE SENSORS 2018, INDICON 2009 and the Technical Program Committee co-Chair of IEEE APSCON 2025, IEEE APSCON 2024, IEEE International Symposium on Smart Electronic Systems (iSES 2023), INDICON 2019. 

Some of the notable awards which I won are: 2019 IEEE India Council Section Chair Lifetime Achievement Award, 2017 IEEE Sensors Council Meritorious Service Award, 2012 IEEE MGA Leadership Award and 2010 IEEE Region 10 Outstanding Volunteer Award.
