Conjoint Senior Lecturer

Dr Arindam Pal

Ph.D. in Theoretical Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.

Engineering
Sch: Computer Science & Eng

I am a Senior Research Scientist at Data61 in Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and a Senior Research Fellow at Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC). I am also a Conjoint Senior Lecturer at University of New South Wales. Previously, I was a Research Scientist at TCS Research and Innovation. I earned my Ph.D. in Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. My Ph.D. research advisors were Professor Amit Kumar and Professor Naveen Garg.

My primary areas of expertise are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). This is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform a specific task, without using explicit instructions. My broad research interests are:

  • Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning
  • Analysis of Complex Networks and Social Networks
  • Approximation, Randomized and Online Algorithms
  • Combinatorial Optimization and Mathematical Programming
  • Cyber Security

In my previous life, I worked as a Technical Lead at Yahoo! Research and Cognizant, and as a Software Design Engineer at Microsoft Corporation and Novell Inc. I also did internships at IBM Research and Yahoo! Labs. I completed my Master of Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Automation, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and Bachelor of Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, both in Computer Science and Engineering. I had the privilege of working with Professor Samiran Chattopadhyay at Jadavpur University and Professor Ramesh Hariharan at IISc Bangalore, who is the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Strand Life Sciences.
