Dr. ChandanHaldar is the Managing Director and Chief Strategist of Morphing Machines, a deep technology R&D company launched from the Technology Entrepreneurship Center at the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore in 2005. At Morphing Machines he provides the strategic leadership to the evolution of the path-breaking reconfigurable massively parallel processor architecture and System-on-Chip platform technology named REDEFINE, which is attracting global attention of key customers and researchers recently. Dr. Haldar is also associated with Terra Incognitus Systems Research Alliance, intended to be a niche R&D incubator for building breakthrough open systems and software solutions using advanced research-centric technologies for a variety of applications relevant to India and other emerging markets.

Dr. Haldar earned his BTech (Honors) and MTech degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur in 1984 and 1985 respectively, followed by a PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering in 1993 from the Department of Computer Science and Automation at the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore. He has published numerous academic research papers in wellknown international conferences and journals in the areas of Theoretical Computer Science, Parallel Algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence, covering applications in Computational Geometry, Symbolic Algebraic Computation, and Dynamics of Algorithms. Subsequently, he held senior technical and management leadership positions in several world-leading computer systems and software technology corporations. He led the Medical Systems software development group of Siemens in India and consulted for other real-time systems and software R&D at Siemens during 1993-1999. He spearheaded the IT Architecture and Java technology initiatives for Sun Microsystems in India during 1999-2000. In 2000, he set up the Lucent Technologies Bell Labs product development center at Bangalore and led the organization as country director, till 2004, with global engineering ownership of several key telecommunication systems and software product lines of Lucent Technologies, covering both core wireline networks and mobile wireless networks. He has also held the Senior Director position heading the America Online software development center at Bangalore. Driven by passion for advanced computing and communication technology and hands-on applied computer science and engineering, Dr. Haldar has been involved in deep technology entrepreneurial ventures in India since 2007.

Dr. Haldar is a core member and key contributor to Kenneth Anderson Nature Society, a non-profit voluntary organization working for wildlife protection, biodiversity conservation, and alleviation of human-wildlife conflict in the Melagiris forests in the Tamil Nadu Cauvery Basin area.

Dr. Haldar is an alumnus of the Senior Executive Programme of the London Business School as the recipient of theAditya Birla India Centre Scholarship in 2003. He was a National Talent Search scholar during 1977-1985 and a CSIR Research Associate during 1991-1993. He is a Senior Member of the ACM, the IEEE, and the IEEE Computer Society.


Eminent national level educationist, Professor Asok Kumar Mallik shall attend the Alumni Association Program at Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College on 12-13 Aug. He will enlighten the young minds with his valuable lecture on mathematics during seminar on 13 Aug. He is one of the popular national speaker and guide who is famous for simplifying complex subjects in most understandable language for all.

Professor Asok Kumar Mallik was born in 1947 at Kolkata, West Bengal. He attended The Scottish Church Collegiate School at Kolkata and finished his higher secondary education in 1962. He obtained his Bachelor and Master's degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Bengal Engineering College, Shibpur in 1967 and 1969, respectively. He continued there as a Teacher-Trainee until 1970, when he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Delhi as a lecturer. In 1971 he moved to IIT Kanpur as a lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He obtained his Ph.D from IIT Kanpur in 1973. Between 1982-2009, he was a Professor in the same department. Presently, he came back to West Bengal and associated with his alma mater, IIEST Shibpur as distinguished honorary professor.

During his stay at IIT Kanpur, he went as a commonwealth scholar to Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton, England, where he spent 16 months. Later on, he went to TH, Aachen and TU, Darmstadt, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow for a total duration of two years including four summers.

He has taught a large number of UG and PG courses, mainly in the broad area of Mechanics. These include Mechanics of Solid, Theory of Mechanisms and Machines, Dynamics, Vibrations etc. He has actively participated in the first year course on Physics. He has fabricated a large number of teaching (visual) aids, two educational movies and a forty-lectures video course for transmission in a national channel. Lately he is involved in a series of popular lectures on Elementary Mathematics.

His research areas include Analysis and Control of Mechanical Vibration, Nonlinear Dynamics, Kinematics and Robotics. Along with his students and colleagues, he has authored more than seventy research papers in International Journals. Many results reported by him find prominent mention in a number of international textbooks and handbooks. He has authored/coauthored six textbooks published in India and abroad.

He has been elected a fellow of The Indian National Academy of Engineering, The National Academy of Sciences, India, The Indian Academy of Sciences and The Indian National Science Academy. He received the honorary life membership of The Association of Machines and Mechanisms for life-time contribution. He is a recipient of The Distinguished Teacher Award of IIT Kanpur.

Research Interests:

Mechanical Vibration, Vibration control, Nonlinear vibration and Chaos in mechanical systems, Kinematics and dynamics of machinery.

The JGEC Alumni Association is requesting all to attend the program of 12-13 Aug at JGEC campus. Apart from engineering seminar, technological innovation competition, scholarship program and interpersonal skill related workshop will also be held on 12-13 Aug.
