Srimanta Mandal

PhD (Computing and Electrical Engineering), IIT Mandi

Biography

I received the B.Tech degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the West Bengal University of Technology, West Bengal, in 2010. After that, I joined IIT Mandi as an MS (by research) Scholar. In 2013, I have been enrolled in the Ph.D. program with a conversion from MS. I received the Ph.D. degree from IIT Mandi in 2017. I have been a postdoctoral fellow with the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras from 2017 to 2018. Since October 2018, I have been with DA-IICT, Gandhinagar, where I am currently working as an Assistant Professor.
