Two ECE Graduate Students Receive Inaugural Kulkarni Fellowship

Two ECE Graduate Students Receive Inaugural Kulkarni Fellowship

Biswadip Dey and Ravi Garg, both Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. students, were awarded the 2013 Kulkarni Foundation Summer Research Fellowship, which supports UMD doctoral students who are graduates of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

“It is a great pleasure to receive the Kulkarni Summer Research Fellowship in its inaugural year. This award is very significant at the present stage of my Ph.D. program as it provides a scope for uninterrupted research during the summer,” Dey said.

Dey received his Masters of Technology from IIT, Bombay in 2008 and will graduate from UMD in 2014. He is currently a fourth-year Ph.D. student under Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR). His research focuses on reconstruction and analysis of pursuit and collective motion.

Garg received his Bachelors of Technology from IIT, Madras in 2008 and is currently in his fifth year of Ph.D. studies. His research interests include: signal processing, image and video processing, machine learning, computer vision and wireless communications. He is a research assistant under Dr. Min Wu (ECE/ISR).

 “Using the grant from the Kulkarni research fellowship, my aim is to conduct a statistical study of ENF signals from a theoretical point of view to understand how certain factors affect ENF signal analysis in timestamping,” Garg said. The study will help set guidelines for using ENF-based timestamp techniques in law enforcement and security applications.

Ashok V. Kulkarni (Ph.D., CS ’76) and the Kulkarni Foundation established the fellowship in January 2013, and award it to students to help them complete their degree. ECE congratulates Dey and Garg on their award.
