I am currently an Assistant Professor (Selection Grade) in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Tripura University heading the Computer Vision Lab. I received both my Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree (with Distinction) and Master of Technology (M.Tech.) degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Tripura Engineering College, Govt. of Tripura, in 2004 and Tripura University (A Central University), in 2007 respectively. I earned my Ph.D. degree in Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, in April, 2014 under the joint Supervision of Emeritus Prof. Dipak Kumar Basu, Humboldt Fellow (1989-90), and Prof. Debotosh Bhattacharjee. I also spent Fall 2022 as a SERB International Research Experience Scholar with SIRE Fellowship, Govt. of India at the NYU Center for Cybersecurity (CCS), Tandon School of Engineering, New York University, New York City. During my Post-Ph.D. SERB International Research Experience, I was extremely fortunate to be guided by Emeritus Professor Nasir Memon in Digital Image and Video /Multimedia Forensics, Cyber Thread Modelling.

My research interests are in robust semantic localization of small objects in degraded day and night Vision under different adversial weather/atmospheric conditions, with Scene Classification for security and surveillance applications. I also have significant interest in inflammation detection of joint/skin surface of Arthritis MRI, USG, infrared Imaging and early breast IR based abnormality region understanding with both theoretical and practical System design. More recently, we have been working in shot learning with domain adaptation, in applications to various multimedia forensics Problems in visual and IR Videos. Some of our recent works include Thread Modeling using deepfakes with GANs.

From 7th Jan, 2008 to 14th July, 2010, I served as Lecturer on contract in Computer Science & Engineering Department of Tripura University and since 15th July, 2010, serving as an Assistant Professor in the same department. Some of my research works are published in IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (Impact Factor: 5.859), IEEE Journal of Biomedical & Health Informatics (IF: 5.772), IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (IF: 11.037), Expert Systems with Applications (Elsevier, IF: 8.665), Image and Vision Computing (Elsevier, IF: 3.860),Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (Springer, IF: 7.099), Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (Elsevier, IF: 5.687), Infrared Physics and Technology (IF: 2.638), IET Image Processing (IET, IF: 1.773), Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation (Elsevier, IF: 2.678) and Computer Vision and Image Understanding (Elsevier, IF: 4.886), Neural Computing and Applications (Springer, IF: 5.102) etc.

Some of my research papers are also published in Tier-2 Conference Proceedings such as 25th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing, ICIP 2018, Athens, Greece, 26th IEEE ICIP 2019, Taipei, Taiwan, and 28th ICIP 2021, Anchorage, Alaska, USA.

I handled about Rs. 2.50 Crores of external research grants from various government agencies like MeitY, DBT, ICMR, DRDO, SAMEER, SERB etc. Till date, I successfully completed Six research projects. Besides, for presenting my research works, I also received several international travel grants from various government agencies like Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), All India Council for Technical Council (AICTE), SERC Division: ITS Section of Department of Science & Technology (DST), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Centre for Co-operation in Science & Technology among Developing Societies (CCSTDS) etc.

I awarded for Short Term Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)-Department of Health Research (DHR) International Fellowship 2019-2020 as a Senior Indian Biomedical Scientists for bilateral cooperation in cross-disciplinary research area (i.e. biomedical diagnostic and inferencing system). I supervised Master’s thesis of 34 master students till 2022. Currently, guiding Four Ph.D. scholars and Six Research Scholars are already awarded.

I served as an active reviewer of many well renowned Journals. Some of them are IEEE TIP, IEEE JBHI, SPIE JEI, PES Springer, IET Biometrics, IET Image processing, SPIE JEI, IEEE TCSVT, IEEE TSMCS, IEEE Access, IEEE TIFS, Knowledge-Based Systems Elsevier, Computers in Biology and Medicine Elsevier, CMIG Elsevier, Neural Computing & Applications Springer. Also served as an IEEE Senior member (10th Sept, 2016), a member of SPIE, ACM. For attending international conferences, I made international visits to Florida USA; Kean University, New Jersey; NYU CCS, NYIT Manhattan, Italy and Athens, Taipei, Paris etc. My research interests include Computer Vision, Medical Imaging, Cyber Security, etc.
