I am currently working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronics Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), Varanasi after working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad during December, 2015 to December, 2016. Previously, I had worked as Senior Project Engineer (Ad-hoc) in the Department of Electrical Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India from February, 2015. I have successfully defended my PhD thesis on 30 April, 2015 in Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India which I have started in January, 2010. My research work is on design of microwave absorbers using metamaterials. My thesis supervisor is Dr. Kumar Vaibhav Srivastava.
I have done my schooling from Ballygunge Government High School, Kolkata in 2000 when I have passed Higher Secondary Examinations. Then, I have passed Honours in Physics from Scottish Church College, Kolkata in 2003. Next to it, I have  done my Bachelor of Technology from Institute of Radiophysics and Electronics in University of Calcutta in 2006 from where I have done my Master of Technology also in 2008. I have done my M.Tech thesis in Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, where I have served as Project Assistant after my M.Tech defense. I have also served as a Lecturer in Academy of Technology in 2009.
