Debarati Sen is presently associated with the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur as an Associate Professor in the G.S.S. School of Telecommunications. She received her Master in Engineering in 2004 as a university topper from IIEST, Howrah, and PhD in Telecommunication Engineering from IIT- Kharagpur in 2010 as a National Doctoral Fellow. She was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Dept. of Signals and Systems, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, and a Senior Chief Engineer at Samsung Research, Bangalore, India prior to join IIT-Kharagpur as an Assistant Professor in 2013. In 2014, Dr. Sen was a visiting faculty with the Institute for Communications Engineering, Technical University of Munich, Germany through the DAAD-IIT Faculty Exchange Program. In 2019, she was an academic visitor with the Dept. of ECSE, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. In her research, Dr. Sen focuses on Wireless and Optical Communication Systems, mostly on 5G & Beyond Communications, Millimeter Wave Communications, Large MIMO Systems, Short Range Communications, Terahertz Communications, Cloud RAN, and Baseband algorithm design for coherent optical communications. Her research is supported by a variety of Govt. organizations including MHRD, BEL, HAL, MeitY, DST, DRDO, Indian Railways and external collaborators like AIRBUS, Qualcomm, Samsung etc. Dr. Sen has 12 patent applications to her credit including few US Granted Patents, and published more than 100 papers in Journals and Conferences of repute. Her administrative responsibilities includes - editorial board membership of two international journals; TPC Co-Chair - IEEE NCC 2020, and IEEE ICIIS 2019; Publication Co-Chair, IEEE ANTS 2015; Member, Board of Studies, RV College of Engineering, Bangalore (2018-2021); Member, Mentor Council for NCVT courses, Min. of L&E, GoI (2014-2015); Member, RNES working group, TSDSI, India (Since 2014); Divisional IP Coordinator, Samsung Research, Bangalore (2013) etc. As Vice Chair, IEEE Kharagpur Chapter (2019), and Chair, IEEE WIE Kharagpur Chapter (2017-2019), Debarati is involved in Inspiring, Engaging, Encouraging and Empowering women in engineering. She is dedicated to facilitating the development of programs and activities that promote the entry and retention of women in science, technology and related fields. She is also associated with ‘Sarada Kalyan Bhandar’, a non-profit public philanthropic trust to nourish and elevate the under privileged Children, Youth, Women, and Uncared Old Ladies of neighbouring area through Education, Nutrition, Health Care and Environmental Awareness. She is the recipient of Best Paper Award at Samsung Tech. Conference 2010; IE(I) Young Engineers Award 2010; ‘Award of Excellence’ at Samsung Research, Bangalore in 2010; IETE N.V.G. Memorial Award 2013; Best Paper Award (Honorable Mention) at IEEE ANTS 2016, Bangalore; Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship 2017. She is a Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of IE(I), and Life Member, Indian Science Congress Association.
