This is Dr. Anirban Sarkar, currently working as Assistant Professor at Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, India. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India in 2019 with the specialization on RF and Microwave. In 2019, I joined as a Post-doctoral fellow in the School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Chung-Ang University, Seoul, South Korea under Prof. Sungjoon Lim in association with Hyundai Technologies. In 2021, I joined in Microtechnology Lab, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan State University, USA as a Research Associate under principal investigator Prof. Wen Li.
During 2013-2021, I explored several new avenues in designing numerous microwave and mm-wave scanning antennas for some surveillance-radars, broadcasting applications, vehicular applications, remote health monitoring system based on wearable antennas, etc. Since 2021, I started designing compact reader circuits for IOP-sensors in detection of early malaria, THz micro-antennas for detecting bacterial communications, contraction force detectible microwave EM-sensors to avoid obstructive sleep apnea and unsuccessful deliveries. My current diversified interdisciplinary research involves 6G/Millimeter-Wave devices, developing IoT-based smart reconfigurable/programmable metasurfaces for 5G applications, advanced leaky-wave beam scanning antennas and also on on-body/off-body/invasive/non-invasive advanced, non-destructive, highly-sensitive and rapid-detecting electromagnetic intelligent Bio-sensors and Biomarkers.
