Arnab completed a Bachelor of Technology (Honours) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering with minor in Computer Applications from the National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli in 2019 and was awarded a gold medal for achieving the highest score in his department. Arnab was conferred with the DAAD WISE scholarship and Cargill Global Scholarship for his academic and leadership qualities.
Arnab’s interests are around 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”.
In his future research work undertakings, Arnab primarily wants to address the issue of climate change. More specifically, during the completion of his PhD, Arnab is interested in undertaking research on the development of smart grids (focusing broadly on their operation, analysis, modelling and protection) and autonomous electric vehicles.
