Short biography

I received a B.E. degree in Electronics and Electrical Communications from Punjab Engineering College, India, an M.S. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Seoul National University, South Korea, and a Ph.D. in Informatics from the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Japan.

After finishing my Ph.D., I joined the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Tokyo in 2006 as a researcher, and am currently working in the position of a research manager. Since 2013, I concurrently hold a visiting associate professor’s position at the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, where I supervise graduate students. I have been serving as a Co-rapporteur of ITU-T Study Group 13 since 2014. My research interests include network architectures, 5G networks, Internet of things (IoT), information-centric networking (ICN), network function virtualization, software-defined networking, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), cyber security and privacy protection. I have published more than 100 research papers in peer reviewed journals, magazines and conferences. I have also edited ten ITU-T Recommendations and Supplements related with the Next Generation Network (NGN), Future Networks, IMT-2020 or 5G networks, and submitted many contributions for building these and other Recommendations. I have written 12 patents.

I am a Fellow of ITU-T Study Group 13, life member of Nepal Engineers Association, senior member of IEEE, and member of IEICE.

I received the ITU Association of Japan’s Encouragement Award and Accomplishment Award in 2009 and 2017, respectively. I received three Best Paper Awards at the ITU Kaleidoscope Academic Conferences in 2009, 2014 and 2018.
