  Work Experience
Teaching : 19 Years

Research : 17 Years

  Professional Background

Worked with CMC, Kolkata, in the capacity of Project Trainee, during which time I had the responsibilty of designing the database schema for a Kolkata Police project, involving traffic violations.

  Research Areas

My current research interest is in the fields of information retrieval from web corpus, dynamic data visualization and blind source separation of images.

I also work in the domain of machine learning, where I study the application of machine learning in the context of computer vision.

  Award and Honours

 Gold Medallist, University of North Bengal, 2001
