ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:



Prior to joining IIT Madras as a professor, Prof.Rengaswamy was a professor of Chemical Engineering and Co-Director of the Process Control and Optimization Consortium at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, USA. He was also a professor and associate professor at Clarkson University, USA and an assistant professor at IIT Bombay. His major research interests are in the areas of fault detection and diagnosis and development of data science algorithms for manufacturing industries.

Prof.Shankar Narasimhan is currently a professor in the department of Chemical Engineering at IIT Madras. His major research interests are in the areas of data mining, process design and optimization, fault detection and diagnosis and fault tolerant control. He has co-authored several important papers and a book titled Data Reconciliation and Gross Error Detection: An Intelligent Use of Process Data which has received critical appreciation in India and abroad.
