Current M.E. Students




Avishek Ghosh

I joined for M.E. in Aug. 2012. I work with Prof. Anurag Kumar. I obtained my B.E. in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (ETCE) from Jadavpur University, Kolkata in 2012. Currently I am working on the problem of optimal sequential relay node placement (As-you-go deployment) using methods of Markov Decision Processes (MDP).









Samrat Mukhopadhyay

I joined for M.E. in Aug. 2012. I work with Prof. Anurag Kumar. I obtained my B.E. in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (ETC) from Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur in 2012. Currently I am working on Intelligent Transportation System. It requires modelling, optimization and inference about transportation networks using methods from Queueing theory, Scheduling theory and Statistical inference theory.
