About Me

I am pursuing my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India under the supervision of Dr. Sudip Misra. Besides, I am also working as a Senior Research Fellow in the project entitled 'An Indigenous Framework for Authenticity Integrity and Non-Repudiation in Data Communication' funded by DRDO, Govt. of India.

I received the M.S. degree from the School of Information Technology, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India in 2015. I also received the B.Tech degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, India in 2011.

My current research interests include software-defined networking, internet of things, smart grid communications and networking, cloud computing, and wireless ad-hoc and sensor networks.
