Biography

During my 17 yearlong teaching career, I have taught and developed several courses of undergraduate and graduate levels. My academic and teaching interests are in the areas of Computer vision, software engineering & data structures. My objective as a teacher is to motivate students to develop their own learning interests and critical thinking & to establish a learner-centric environment in the classroom.

I have more than 56 publications in refereed journals and conferences. I have guided 4 Ph.D. and 24 M.Tech. and 140+ Undergraduate Projects. Currently guiding 05 Ph.D. scholars. I have served as reviewer of several world class journals ( Like IEEE geoscience letter, IEEE Access, Springer and Elsevier journals) & Conferences. I have also served 11 years as publication chair and now General Co-Chair along with Prof. Sartaj Sahni (UFL, USA) of conference IC3.  I am member of IEEE, ACM and CSI.
