My Recent role was Director Engineering and Offg Dean Academic Affairs at Desh Bhagat University, India. My prime areas of interest being Smart Grid, Optical Fiber communication, Renewable Energy Sources, Electric Vehicles, Electrical Machinery and Engineering Education Research. I have significant contributions through various approaches such as directly supervising Ph.D. students, having acquired a grand total of 50 patents, 32 of which have been published and 4 are granted, teaching courses in depths of my forte’ Optical Fiber Communication, Reliability Engineering, Research Methodology, Energy Efficient Buildings, Electrical Machinery, Circuit Theory, Digital Electronics, Non-Conventional Energy Sources, as well as publishing over 65 International Journals (Scopus Indexed). Also on board as a member for National and International bodies, Senior Member IEEE, National Secretary IEEE Prakash Bharati(Consortium IEEE Photonics Society Chapters India), Member-EXECOM- IEEE PES-IAS, Delhi Chapter, International Advisory Panel for Malaysia Technical Scientist Association, Member-Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers Association(IEEMA) and Academic Nominee-IEEMA Chandigarh Chapter , Life Member of the International Association of Engineers, The Optical Society of India and many more. I am the reviewer and attendee of more than 100 International conferences mainly IEEE and Springer and 40 national conferences. Deeply integrated into the Education and Administrative sector over a long a time span of serving positions of Director Engineering and Offg Dean Academic Affairs, Vice Principal, Head Examination Cell, Officiating Principal, Head of Department and other such titles. Areas that I’m inclined to in this sector are Engineering Education and teachinglearning Pedagogy. With some long years of rich experience in Education, I was appreciated by internationally recognized entities through awards of appreciation on the lines of Great Indian Women Award 2021 in the Category of The Great Indian Women Leader In Innovation, IEEE Appreciation letter, from Associate Vice President of Chapter Relations, IEEE Photonics Society, USA, India’s Top 20 Women Leaders in Education 2020, Certificate of Appreciation 2019-IEEE Indonesia Section, Mother Teresa Sadhbawna Award, Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Award, Golden Educationist of India Award, National Mahilla Rattan Gold Medal award and Consecutive Best Teacher Awards by ISTE, and Chandigarh University for three years. Along my journey as an educationist teaching Human Resource Management and Total Quality Management and developing strategies in order to organize several FDP’s, workshops and seminars in turn delivering a far greater, richer learning experience to my students, I continue to derive my inspiration to play my role as best as possible by joining and remaining active with establishments such as the Global Dean Council, presenting papers for publishing on Engineering, attending conferences around the globe and consistently reviewing large numbers of educational journals. The aftermath of indulging in these activities results in writing books with the accumulated knowledge. I have authored the books “Basic Electrical Technology- A review”, “Performance Modeling of Hybrid Fiber Amplifiers for DWDM Systems”, proceedings of “National Conference on Structuring Innovation through Quality SITQ- 2013”, “Optical Communications Systems” with the chapter “Hybrid Fiber Amplifier” and more in contribution to the related existing study. The most recent venture I have adopted under my leadership is to create a supremely innovative smart campus at Chandigarh University. The endeavor has begun to incorporate the use of solar energy, manage and audit all energy sources and build eco-friendly mobility systems utilizing my models of E Bikes and E-Cars. The contemporary world is in need of more leaders, peacemakers and innovative thinkers than it is for commercially ‘successful’ people. With that said, the knowledge and experience I have earned along my journey and the multifarious work profile I now hold would make its ultimate impact when it breaks through real-time global barriers and is shared with young and passionate students.
