Hi.

I am an assistant professor in the Dept. of Electronics and Communication Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (IITR). I did my undergraduate and graduate work at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK). I worked as the manager of the Berkeley Device Modeling Center and as a postdoctoral scholar in the BSIM group at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California Berkeley.

My work primarily involves the analysis, modeling and design of semiconductor devices. One of the key areas of my work is to develop compact models for SPICE simulations. I continue to be a part of the BSIM group and the Berkeley Device Modeling Centre (BDMC). I am a co-developer of the industry standard BSIM-BULK, BSIM-IMG, BSIM-CMG, BSIM-SOI, ASM-HEMT and IITK-RPTM models.

My hometown is the city of Durgapur in West Bengal. I am passionate about automobiles. I also play multiple musical instruments, create digital artworks and love playing football.
