ASSOCIATE EDITOR-IEEE OPEN ACCESS
A senior faculty with more than 15 years of experience in teaching with about ten of them in the research I have a lot more to achieve and contribute to society. My tryst with research started with my association with Bhabha Atomic Research Center where I developed neural and data mining algorithms for the diagnosis of peripheral and arterial occlusive diseases. The diagnostic software is still fully functional and widely used to collaborate further medical investigations by various research centers. I had my first industry exposure having successfully delivered R&D based solutions for CTA images. We provided real-time solutions for Interactive segmentation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in CT angiography for UK based advanced visualization organization. At IIT Bombay we designed a Wireless Body Area Network architecture as an effective network that allows operation on low power consumption, efficient communication with back end and has practical and low-cost hardware implementation. At the core of this architecture, we fabricated an innovative textile material that exhibits conducting, sensing, and radiating properties. The thermal variations or pulses from the radial artery of the subject are measured via these sensors, which are integrated with the clothing of the subject. An on-body textile antenna is designed made out of a unique composite of synthetic textiles raw silk, poly-nylon and the innovative textile as the radiating element. The material is made purely out of synthetic textiles and can be easily integrated with the apparels, dyed with any color, and manufactured with variable thickness, thus providing wearable computing in a truly practical sense.
I have traveled extensively to over ten international conferences for oral presentations and invited talks. With my new innings at DJ Sanghvi, I try to bring out the best in my students.
