Sunil Khijwania received PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in 1999. He visited Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Tokyo, Japan as a Monbusho Post Doctoral Fellow during 2000-2002. Subsequently, he held Post Doctoral Research Associate position at Mississippi State University, Starkville, USA during 2002-2004. In 2004, he joined Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati as an Assistant Professor, where he is Professor since August 2014. He was an academic visitor during 2008 and Visiting Assistant Professor during 2007 as well as 2006 at the department of Electrical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. Since May, 2015 he is Head, Center for Educational Technology (CET) at IIT Guwahati.


He has been working on various applications of optical fiber and based devices such as Fiber Bragg Gratings. He has published over 90 papers in journals and conference proceedings. He has co-authored six book chapters and co-edited one book on experimental fiber optics. His current research interests are predominantly focused on the design and development of optical fiber sensors employing Photonic Crystal Fiber, fiber gratings, side polished fibers, nano-wire and surface-plasmon resonance apart from the conventional fiber optics techniques aiming applications that span from structural health monitoring, environmental engineering to biomedical science. In addition, his research also involves the understanding of the propagation characteristics of specially designed optical fibers. He had organized  PHOTONICS 2010, an international conference on fiber optics and photonics.


He is a senior member of Optical Society of America (OSA) as well as of IEEE Photonics Society. He is fellow and life member of Optical Society of India (OSI). He is also a member of the executive council of Optical Society of India (OSI).
