  • Biography

    Chakraborty is currently appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Tennessee. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and a dual M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2010. His PhD research focused on data-driven techniques for monitoring complex systems. He further developed this topic as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Tennessee. Chakraborty's research encompasses the broad topics of collaborative decision making in the context of connected vehicles. More specifically, he focuses on modeling and learning individual driver's decision-making as a function of group driving behavior. He uses GPS and IMU sensor data for deploying learning algorithms. His research also involves multi-agent optimization of groups of vehicles to minimize damage due to secondary crashes. With grants from the Volkswagen Research Initiative, Chakraborty has instrumented a car with lasers, 360-degree camera, GPS and IMU units and is conducting studies for learning driver behavior in a connected environment. His group is also developing a distributed platform for simulating the connected vehicle environment, which will be useful for investigating the role of optimization algorithms and message transfer delays in deploying driver assist systems. His relevant professional affiliations include membership of IEEE and IEEE Robotics associations, and he has served as reviewer and session chair for numerous IEEE and ASME conferences.
