Short Biography

Currently working as a post-doctoral researcher in the Biometrics-security-and-privacy group at IDIAP Research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland. I am working in BATL project, in the area of secure biometrics. Previously did PhD in Department of Electrical Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. My research focus during Ph.D was on eye gaze tracking and its applications. 

Previously, received M Tech in Instrumentation from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 2012 and B Tech (Hons.) from Calicut University, Kerala in 2010 in Electrical and Electronics Engg. 

Areas of expertise include Computer vision, Biometrics, Image processing, Pattern recognition, Machine Learning, Eye tracking, Python, C and C++ programming, Micro controller programming, and Embedded System Design.
