Dr. Suranjan Panigrahi, a professor in the department of Electrical and computer Engineering Technology, has 27 years of comprehensive experience in research, teaching, administration, and outreach. Dr. Panigrahi ‘s research focuses on the development of smart and intelligent system to prevent, detect and manage critical (safety,and wellness) issues in biological systems. He adopts a systems-based approach to develop novel sensor and sensing technology-based smart solutions real world applications. He has cross-disciplinary training and expertise in engineering, biological systems, sensors, electronics, information technologies and management (MBA).
He has successfully innovated multiple technologies for agricultural/ biological food applications. He is the lead inventor of 3 approved U.S. patents (related to field scale quality sensors). He is the author/co-authors of more than 200 technical papers, publications, book chapters including patents and software. His papers and scholarly contributions have 2039 citations with the h-index of 24 and the i10- index of 38. He and his research group were one of the early pioneers (from early 1990) in developing and adapting different forms of artificial intelligent tools and techniques (including expert system, machine learning or artificial neural network, computer vision and other intelligent tools) for a variety of agricultural, food and biological applications. He was the founder/director of an interdisciplinary research center “Bio-imaging and Sensing center” at North Dakota State University for 9 years. In mid-1990’s, Dr. Panigrahi created new field-scale non-destructive sensors to determine the quality of selected agricultural products (protein content of wheat, sugar content of sugar beets) during harvesting. This work resulted in three approved (U.S.A.) patents for Dr. Panigrahi (as the lead inventor) and his colleagues. The developed methods can be modified for sensing other quality parameters. These patents, first of its kind, were more than 15 years ahead of its time. Today, the developed technologies are a part of the sought-after solutions for the digital agriculture revolution.
At present, he directs a mutli-disciplinary research laboratory "Integrated Sensing and Smart Solutions Laboratory" at Purdue University. He and his group are developing smart sensors and sensing systems, intelligent models for automation, quality control, defect and contamination detection, safety, and predictive health informatics applications. They develop and adapt a system-based solution oriented approach while engineering emerging and appropriate technological tools including computer vision and non-visible imaging, machine learning, information technology, photonic and plasmonic sensing, chemical and bio-mimetic sensing, intelligent sensing-based on novel smart and Mirco or nano structured materials.
Some of the current activities involve the development of intelligent models for prediction of specific diseases; development of cost-effective intelligent sensor and information management system for agricultural, food and biological systems; development of novel assistive devices for specific diseases to increase the quality of life of elderly population; development of field-scale sensors to detect heavy metal contamination in water and food systems so as to increase the overall health of people in low resource setting. He is passionate about creating disruptive innovation for critical societal issues. One of his recent research thrusts is to create innovative sustainable solutions for water and food linked health and wellness issues.
Dr. Panigrahi has extensive experience in developing, modifying, and teaching different undergraduate and graduate courses. He has taught courses related to machine design, power units, electrical energy applications, basic electronics, innovation, computer vision, embedded systems. . At Purdue., he has crated a new undergraduate course on Applied Computer Vision for Sensing and Automation. He also developed and taught another undergraduate course on "Advanced Embedded Systems" where emphasis is placed on design and development of 32-bit embedded systems. He has also developed and taught graduate coruses He also developed graduate course related to computer imaging, and biomedical innovations.
He has mentored more than 30 graduate students (MS and Ph.D.) and 13 post-doctoral associates (visiting scholars). His past students are employed as either tenure track faculty members in several U.S. universities or are in key technical/ management positions in private companies.
He has provided his professional service and leadership in a variety of ways at his home universities and also in different professional organizations including in the ASABE. He has served as reviewers and associate editors in different professional journals. He has served in leadership roles in several national level technical committees.He has contributed to many professional organizations including IEEE, ASEE, ASABE, and AAAS. He is a member of two honor societies - Gamma Sigma Delta and Alpha Epsilon honor society.
