Debarka Sengupta received his Ph.D. in Computer Sc. and Engineering from Jadavpur University. Afterward, he spent about three years as a postdoctoral research fellow at the prestigious Genome Institute of Singapore. Before joining IIIT-D he worked as an INSPIRE Faculty at the Machine Intelligence Unit of Indian Statistical Institute. Debarka started his professional career as a software engineer working for Infosys and then IBM. He consulted and advised a number of technology and service-based firms including IPsoft, Datanomers, CoreCompete and Applied Research Works on various data science and business analytics projects. He received the 2007 spot award by Infosys while working there as a software engineer. His U.S. patent on applied social choice theory was awarded by the patent monetization giant Intellectual Ventures. He has twice been nominated for the prestigious INSPIRE Faculty award - in 2014 and 2016. Debarka currently mentors the data science team at Circle of Life healthcare Pvt. Ltd., a prominent, Delhi-based health tech startup.
