Rohit is an Electronics and Communications Engineering Graduate, with experience in working on the domain of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including "smart" home appliances, health and environmental monitors and Transport Data Loggers(TDL- Bosch GmBh, Germany). His focus is to employ a variety of deep learning techniques, ranging from data analysis and machine learning to human-computer interaction methods such as Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence based modelling.

His current PhD project is titled as "Low Cost Internet of Things based Sensor Networks for Air Quality" under the supervision of Professor Martin Mayfield. This project is funded by Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures. As a Grantham Scholar researching on climate change, Rohit's main aim is to develop models and techniques that will afford significantly improved monitoring and communication of the pollution level in cities without the need to significantly invest in monitoring equipment.
