I am a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, India.

After working for the public sector giant Indian Oil Corporation (Assam Oil Division) Limited for 3 years, I returned to academics. I worked for a short spell in Jorhat Engineering College, Jorhat; one of the pioneering Engineering Colleges situated in the North Eastern part of India. In the spring of 1997, I joined Tezpur University, Tezpur, India and established the erstwhile  Department of Information Technology, Tezpur University.

From October 2009 to March 2010, I have been a Vertretungsprofessur (Substitute `Full' Professor) of Cognitive Systems & NeuroInformatics, FB3 - Informatik, University of Bremen, Germany.

My primary research interest is in Rehabilitation Robotics and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning. This translates into interest in bio-mimetic prosthetics; cognition and cognitive vision. From August 2010 to May 2017, I was a Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Tezpur University, wherein I had established the Biomimetic and Cognitive Robotics Lab.
