I am a researcher/scientist of non-conventional and intelligent communication system. So far I have been providing technological solutions to the limitations and challenges of Wireless Sensor Network, Other Distributed Embedded Systems, Cloud Computing, Big Data and Internet of Things. I hold a degree of PhD on Sensor Networking from E&ECE department of IIT Kharagpur.

In my early research career, I spent most of my time on almost all aspect of Sensor Networking (barring physical layer). Presently I am working in Corporate Research Lab of Robert Bosch a German Multinational Company in Bangalore as a Lead Scientist/Researcher. Here, I am leading different initiatives of Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and Big data.  Apart from the core technological research I am also supposed to contribute to the business aspect of the research.

Technology evangelizing has been one of the core activities of my corporate research career. I did it in different domain of Home Building Automation, Energy Management, Smart Grid, Automotive, Video Surveillance and Healthcare. Before joining Robert Bosch I was working as a Senior Researcher in General Motors Research lab in Bangalore. Here was working in "intra-vehicular-communication-networking". In this role I developed synchronization technique for ECUs of vehicle mostly intended for Automotive Ethernet and conceptualized a mechanism of introducing fault tolerance in AUTOSAR Ethernet components. It was a short stint at this lab before closure of this lab was announced.

I started my post PhD research career in Infosys Research Lab in the technology domain of "Sensor Network". It was most enriching experience resulting in 10 patents, 18 research papers and one book chapter along with four products which are available commercially as of now.  Before PhD I had a chance to work in Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai where I was involved in hardware development of medical electronics.

While working in Infosys I received MIT Technology Review award of year 2010 for best energy management solution from India. I also received Infosys Excellence award (the highest possible honor to an individual out of 1.5 lacs engineers). I have been a finalist of Indian Mathematics Olympiad during my school days and my name is listed in Marquis World's Who is Who.

I am actively and intensely pursuing my hobby of creative writing. So far I have written more than three hundred non-technical blog articles. I also managed to publish two book (fiction).  One of my book in maithili can be purchased from flipkart, ebay and simplybooks website. Interestingly I am assuming "Aadi Yaayavar आदि यायावर" as my "pen name" for my writing in maithili.
