My name is Srikanth, and I am an Assistant Professor with the School of Computer and Electrical Engineering at IIT Mandi, India.
I work in the area of fibre lasers, specializing in real-time laser characterization techniques. I am keenly interested in applying such techniques in real-world applications, where multi-gigahertz bandwidth, megahertz-rate acquisition diagnostics can lead to interesting insights.
