Debatosh Guha is a Professor of the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, University of Calcutta, India and formerly HAL Chair Professor of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. He is Abdul Kalam Technology Innovation National Fellow.
He received the B.Tech and M.Tech degrees from the University of Calcutta in 1987 and 1989, respectively and started his career as an Engineer in Webel Telecommunication Industries Limited. After graduating with a Ph.D. in microwave engineering from Calcutta University, he joined the same University as an Assistant Professor in 1994.
He has researched in developing microstrip and dielectric resonator antenna technologies. Defected Ground Structure (DGS) -integrated antenna is one of his major areas of contribution. He has published over 200 papers in top Journals and Conferences along with a book on ‘Microstrip and Printed Antennas' from Wiley, UK, 2011. He developed wireless base-station antennas for a North American industry, which have been a commercial product (Z1900) since 2007.
Debatosh has been actively serving several academic and scientific committees of different professional and Government bodies which include the National Academy of Engineering (INAE); the Indian Academy of Sciences (IASc); Department of Science and Technology (DST)/ Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India, etc. in different capacities. He has been appointed a standing committee Chair of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
About 100 journal articles are to his credit, the majority of which appeared in IEEE Transactions and Letters. He has contributed a few feature articles to IEEE Magazines projecting deeper scientific insights into some engineering problems of common interests. He has authored and co-authored nearly 150 conference papers and 2 reference books on planar antennas. Many of his works have been featured in renowned textbooks and handbooks on antenna engineering.
Deabatosh over the last two decades has mentored a large group of doctoral, post-doctoral, and master’s students who have been well established across the globe in top Industries, R&D organizations, and leading Universities in India, Europe, and North America. His current research group comprises both full-time and part-time researchers along with vibrant collaborators from ISRO, HCL Technologies, University of Glasgow, and a limited cluster of his former students. They are exploring innovative approaches to solve a wide range multiple industry oriented challenges starting from 4G/5G base-station antenna structures to compact space borne beam shaping antenna systems.
