Currently, I am working as a senior research officer in the BCI-NE Lab, University of Essex, UK. My current research is on augmenting group decision making using collaborative Brain-computer Interfacing. In the recent past, I was working on the BCI-LIFT project with INRIA, France on incorporating Brain-machine Interfacing (BMI) technology into Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) based rehabilitation system.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Jadavpur University (at Kolkata, India) in September, 2015. The main focus of my Ph.D. was to develop BMI based control schemes for rehabilitation and robotic applications. Simultaneously, I have also developed principles and algorithms required for Electroencephalography (EEG) feature selection and classification. I also had teaching duties during this duration.
I graduated as a Biomedical Engineer from Siliguri Institute of Technology, India back in 2009. As part of my final year project, I worked on Heart Rate Variability signals. In 2011, I attained a Master of Engineering degree in Biomedical Engineering from Jadavpur University. It is during this time that I started my research on BMI and EEG signals and am still continuing my research.
My research interest includes Brain-machine interface, Bio-potential signal processing, Machine learning, Rehabilitative engineering and robotics, Biomedical image processing, Biomedical instrumentation and Biomedical control systems.
I enjoy travelling, reading sci-fi novels and comics and playing football. My favourite authors are J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Isaac Asimov, Arthur Conan Doyle, Victor Hugo and Jules Verne. I am multi-lingual and can speak English, Hindi, Bengali and Assamese fluently and some French. Currently, I am learning French.
