BIOGRAPHY

Presently, I am working as Assistant Professor (Senior Grade) and serving academics & research in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering & Information Technology, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida-62, U.P., since 2020. I have a rich teaching and industry experience of 10+ years, during which I have been actively involved in various academic and administrative activities at both department as well as institute level. During my post-graduation in Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology, Patiala since 2008, I received University Gold Medal for topping through all semesters in M.E. (batch 2001-2003). Besides teaching, I also have a rich experience of working in a software company, Vyam Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (previously iBilt Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), where I was mainly involved in the development and testing of ERP and educational projects. I have published papers in many national and international conferences and journals. I am involved as reviewer and TPC member for many international conferences and journals. I have guided approximately 30 under-graduate projects. Presently, I am supervisor to 3 PhD scholars working in the fields social network analysis and machine learning.
