Who I am

Hello there,

I am currently a PhD student at Electrical Engineering Department, University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently I am working at WaveOPT lab under Prof. Mojtaba Soltanalian. My research interests include signal processing and optimization theory, specifically different ways the optimization theory can facilitate a better processing and design of signals for collecting information and communication channels, Active Sensing, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning.

I received my bachelor degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, India.

I also have a strong background software designing, development and maintenance as an IT specialist. I have 1.5 years of work experience in Cognizant Technology Solutions as a Java Developer.

Above everything, I am a part time artist. My subject is mostly ​​​​abstract based on psychological or sociological concepts and the media I use is mixture of hand sketch and digital editing. Black and white is my color. Check out my work at HitRECord500px or DeviantArt. If you like them, please support my art at Society6 and Etsy or donate here. Thank you.
