Welcome to my homepage about my ongoing research and teaching activities.
I am an India-born British computer scientist and currently working as a Senior Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE), University of Essex (UoE). From Nov 2020-Nov 2022, I worked as a Lecturer in CSEE and from Nov 2017-Nov 2022, I worked as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Analytics and Data Science (IADS), UoE. Prior to joining UoE, I worked as Post-Doctoral Research Officer in Machine Learning at The Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research, Swansea University, UK (July 2016 - Present). Before joining Swansea, I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in Machine Learning for EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfacing at the Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC), School of Computing and Intelligent Systems, Ulster University, UK (December 2015-June 2016). My doctoral (PhD) dissertation was under the supervision of Professor Girijesh Prasad and Dr Hubert Cecotti and looked at adaptive learning for modelling for non-stationary systems and its application to EEG-based brain-computer interfaces (October 2012-December 2015).

I received a PhD in Computer Science from University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, UK; master’s degree in Computer Engineering from Manav Rachna International University, India; and a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Integral University, India. I completed my primary and secondary education during 1991-2003 from Colvin Taluqdars’ College in Lucknow, which is one of the oldest private schools in India. I was born in the city of Lucknow and spent nearly 24 years. Here is a YouTube video if you want to see Lucknow.
Prior to joining University of Essex, I worked at Swansea University, Wales, UK; University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, UK; Dilla University, Ethiopia; and Manav Rachna International University, India.
I am also associated with following professional bodies:
- Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
- Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE).
My research interests lie in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Vision Transformers (ViT), Domain Adaptation, Non-stationary Learning, Electroencephalography (EEG)/Magnetoencephalography (MEG)-based Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), and Robotics related BCI-based Neuro-Rehabilitation. I have extensive experience in developing, testing and deploying intelligent learning systems for various applications, including robotics, medical imaging (EEG \& MEG), healthcare systems (such as skin-cancer detection and forensic dentistry), and environmental science. My work spans the entire spectrum from foundational ML and explainable AI (xAI) theories to practical implementations in real-world scenarios, with a particular focus on influencing policies for the safe adoption of ML.
