I have currently joined as a Research Fellow at  Cyber Security Research Centre (CYSREN) and Biometric and Forensic Lab (BFL), under School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technical University (NTU), Singapore. Here, I am working on Image text spotting using deep learning. Earlier, I worked as a Post Doctoral Fellow (PDF) at Imaging Lab, GREYC UMR6072 funded by Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at University de Caen Normandie, France.

I did my Ph.D. thesis in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Roorkee. My researches was focused on developing a Mobile Vision System for Plant Biometric System - using plant leaf images in 2016. Dr. P. Sateesh Kumar, Associate Professor, CSE, IIT Roorkee and Prof. Debashis Ghosh, Head of the Department & Professor, ECE, IIT Roorkee are my supervisors under whom I carried my thesis work.   

I pursued the Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) from IIIT (Indian Institute of Information Technology) Allahabad in 2011. HCI is concerned with the joint performance of tasks by humans and machines. It hones up Human capabilities to use machines (including the learn ability of interfaces), algorithms and programming of the interface itself. I have worked on various interaction techniques such as 6D mouse, gesture, head-eye tracker and so on. This is an emerging technology. I have also studied on Humanoid Robotics and its various challenges in research. 

I received a B.Tech. (Hons) in Computer Science from CET, IILM-AHL, with a gold medal in 2009.

I am an active reviewer and committee members of several journals and conferences such as IEEE Potentials, IEEE Access, IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence, Computers and Electronics in Agriculture, WPC Springer, Neural Computing and Applications, IETE Journal of Research, IETE Journal of Review, Journal of Agr. Sci. Tech., International Journal of Data Analysis Techniques and Strategies, Microelectronics Journal, The Open Medical Devices Journal, ICITCS 2015 Malaysia, 7th ICISA 2016 Vietnam, 8th ICISA 2017 Macau, 9th ICISA 2018 Hong Kong, TENCON 2016 & 2017, CAST 2016, ICCI 2017, BIOSIGNALS 2018 Portugal, BIOSIGNALS 2019 Prague, BIOSIGNALS 2020 Malta, SLICE 2018 Spain, SLICE 2019 Italy, ISBA 2018 Singapore (Local Chair), MIND 2019 India (Publication Chair) and many others. 

I have been awarded as Outstanding reviewer for Computers and Electronics in Agriculture  in March 2018 and Outstanding reviewer for JKSU-Computer and Information Sciences in September 2018. Also awarded a reviewer certificate by Elsevier Biosystems Engineering in October 2018. Best reviewer award for MIND 2019.
