Prateek Panwar

Graduate Student

I have completed my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) field from Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Karnataka, India. From the beginning till end of my four years graduate course, I was involved in different projects and research work which boosted my interest to explore the vast field of technology. As a techno-savvy myself, I am always excited to try and learn state-of-art technologies which has given my research interest an infinite set of topics, out of which I am more inclined towards Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), BCI, Vision and Machine Learning. In addition to that, my interest also lies in the area of Web development and Parallel programming.

As a regular college student, I worked on various mini projects and developed an intranet social networking site as a major project which was successfully deployed in college campus. Moreover, during my college period, I also worked as a visiting researcher at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India for two and a half years and developed different “Gaze-Based Text Entry” Systems. I have published papers in reputed libraries like ACM and IEEE and was awarded for one of them.

I am pursuing my fully funded Master’s from University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Canada.
