Saptarshi Das received B.E. in Power Engineering, M.E. in Power Engineering and Ph.D. (Engineering) all from Jadavpur University, India in 2007, 2010, and 2013 respectively. He got the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD), Govt. of India scholarship (http://mhrd.gov.in) for his master's study and Department of Science & Technology (DST), Govt. of India fellowship (http://www.fist-dst.org/html-flies/purse.htm) for his doctoral study. He worked as a Graduate Engineering Trainee in ALSTOM Projects India Ltd. during June 2007-May 2008. During June 2012-March 2015 he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK where he contributed in three European Commission (EU FP7) funded projects - MICHELANGELO (http://www.michelangelo-project.eu/en/), CHIRON (http://www.chiron-project.eu/) and PLEASED (http://pleased-fp7.eu/) related to biological and biomedical signal processing. From April 2015-August 2015, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Strathclyde, UK and contributed in the EU FP7 funded project - ELECTRA IRP (http://www.electrairp.eu/) related to distributed intelligence and control of smart grids. During September 2015-August 2017, he has worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Cavendish Astrophysics Group, Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, UK on collaborative projects with Royal Dutch Shell plc. (http://www.shell.com/) related to machine learning and Bayesian inference in geophysics. Since September 2017, he is a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, UK.

His research interests include dynamical systems and control theory, fractional calculus, signal processing, computational intelligence, and machine learning applications in energy, medicine and biology. He has co-authored 2 books and more than 85 research papers in refereed scientific journals, conferences and book chapters.
