Topic: Active Noise Control.
Biography: Dr. Debi Prasad Das received the B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in physics from Utkal University, India, in 1996, the M.Sc. degree in Electronics from Sambalpur University, India, in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in electronics and instrumentation engineering from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela, India, in 2004. From 2003 to 2004, he was an Assistant Professor and the Head of the Department of Electronics, Silicon Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar. From 2004 to 2005, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. In April 2005, he joined the Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CEERI), Pilani, India, as a Scientist. After working there for three years, he was transferred to the Process Engineering and Instrumentation Department, CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology, Bhubaneswar, where he has been working as Scientist (2008-2011) and Senior Scientist (2011-2015). Presently he is a Principal Scientist and Head of Process Engineering Department at CSIR-IMMT, Bhubaneswar.
He is also holding an honorary position of Associate Professor of AcSIR in the faculty of Engineering Sciences. He was a guest faculty at IIT Bhubaneswar in Spring Semester 2012.
During 2010-2011 he visited the University of Adelaide, Australia for postdoctoral research in the area of active noise control. He also visited RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia as a postdoctoral research fellow for working in audio signal processing.
He has completed guidance of Six PhDs and four are continuing. He is one of the key technology developer for Eye-On-Pellet and Expert-Eye-On-Pellet which are being used in Indian Steel Industries for monitoring and control of pelletization process.
His research interests include active noise control, signal processing, adaptive signal processing, computationally efficient and hardware-suitable algorithms, microcontroller-based system development, signal and image processing applications for the mineral industry, instrumentation, plasma spectroscopy, Machine learning, Big-Data analysis, IoT and cyber-physical systems.
Dr. Das was a recipient of the Orissa Young Scientists Award (2004) by Govt. of Orissa, India, CSIR Young Scientist Award (2009), by CSIR, India and BOYSCAST Fellowship (2009-10) by DST, Govt. of India, NI Engineering Impact Award 2014 (Runners-up) and AICTE-INAE Distinguished Visiting Professorship-2018. He is also selected as a Mentor of Change for Atal Tinkering Lab in 2018 by Niti Ayog, Govt. of India.
