Congratulations to ECSE PhD Students Anindita Ghosh and Anmol Dwivedi!

ECSE PhD Students Anindita Ghosh and Anmol Dwivedi were selected to receive the Baliga Award! The B. Jayant Baliga ’74 Graduate Student Support Fund shall be used each year to provide the B. Jayant Baliga ’74 Award. The award is given to graduate students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in the area of solid state technology in the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering (ECSE), with primary consideration given to a citizen of India who has obtained a Bachelor’s degree in technology from an Indian Institute of Technology. 

Anindita Ghosh joined RPI in Fall 2019 as a Ph.D. student. Before joining RPI she got her master's in Microelectronics Technology from Jadavpur University in India. As for her research, she is determining how to model and simulate sensors with surface chemical reactions that affect performance starting with
metal oxides. This work may be expanded to other biochemical sensing modalities in the future.

Anmol Dwivedi obtained his Bachelors from National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli in India. He is also a 2019 J.N. Tata scholar, an award given to few Indian students every year in order to support them in taking up higher studies abroad. He is currently a 3rd year Ph.D. candidate working with Dr. Ali Tajer. Anmol’s research is broadly on statistical signal processing with application to cyber-physical systems. Specifically, his interdisciplinary research aims to develop efficient statistical learning and inference algorithms for real-time monitoring and operation of power systems that can preserve system reliability and improve the resilience of the electrical grid.
