Biography

Manish K. Gupta received his BSc (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) and MSc (Mathematics) degrees from the University of Lucknow, India in 1990 and 1992 respectively, and his PhD degree in Mathematics in 2000 from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. He has held various academic positions at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand (2000-2002); National University of Singapore, Singapore (2001); Arizona State University, USA (2002-2004); The Ohio State University, USA (2004-2005); and Queens University, Canada (2005-2006). Since 2006, he has been with the Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT), Gandhinagar, India and currently works as a professor. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Information Theory Society. In the past, he was also a member of the IEEE Communications Society (1997-2010), The International Society for Computational Biology (2004-2006), International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering (ISNSCE) (2004-2006), and The International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) (2004). Since 2010, he has been a member of the American Mathematical Society. Gupta has served as a board member of the Indo-American Education Society, United States-India Educational Foundation (IAES-USIEF) Satellite Center (affiliated with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs), Ahmedabad, India, from 2008 to 2015 and is a founding member of the executive council of the DA-IICT Centre for Entrepreneurship and Incubation (DCEI) since 2010 and currently serves as the chairman of the DCEI executive council. Gupta also serves on numerous government committees including the member of technical advisory committee, Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission (GSBTM), DST, government of Gujarat, State level implementation committee for start-ups/innovation, Industries Commissionerate, government of Gujarat and STEM policy committee, Education department, government of Gujarat.  Gupta also serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computation, Springer and AIMS Electronics and Electrical Engineering, AIMS press from 2017.

He has been selected as a featured reviewer of the ACM Computing Reviews February 2016 issue. His group (http://www.guptalab.org) is well known for developing open-source software products (for example, 3DNA printer, DNA Pen, 3DNA, DNA Cloud, Biospectrogram, Xtile) in the area of DNA nanotechnology. His areas of interest are the elegant applications of mathematics. His LinkedIn profile is https://www.linkedin.com/in/mankg/
