Profile

Biography

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Decision Making Lab, BCI-NE Group, School of Computer Science & Electronics Engineering, University of Essex. I obtained my bachelors degree in Biomedical Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, India in the year 2009 followed by post-graduation in Biomedical Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India in the year 2011. Later, I was awarded my Ph.D. for working in the topic of Brain-Computer Interfacing and Robotic Control from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India in the year 2015. During the tenure of my Ph.D., I visited the DEMAR project team, INRIA, Montpellier, France in 2014 for a period of 9 months as part of the Erasmus Mundus-Svaagata Project Fellowship. Subsequently, I joined the BCI-LIFT project, CAMIN project team, INRIA, Montpellier, France at the end of 2015 as post-doctoral researcher. I am also an associate member of the Institute of Engineers (India).
