UQ Supervisor : Professor Tapan Saha
IITD Supervisor : Professor Sukumar Mishra
Arnab completed a B.Tech (Honours) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering with minor in Computer Applications from NIT Tiruchirappalli in 2019 and was awarded the gold medal for the highest scorer in the Department. He was conferred with the DAAD WISE scholarship and Cargill Global Scholarship for his academic and leadership qualities.
Arnab’s interest in autonomous systems developed during a research internship that he carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent systems in Tuebingen, Germany, where he worked to develop robotic systems that learnt motion-governing equations on their own with the help of a neural network that goes by the name of the “Equation Learner”.
Through his future research work, he primarily wants to address the issue of climate change. More specifically, during his PhD, he is interested in undertaking research on the development of smart grids (focusing broadly on their operation, analysis, modelling and protection) and autonomous electric vehicles.
