Dr. Debashis Ghosh

Assistant Professor - Selection Grade

Profile Summary

Working on his research project, which applies combinatorial designs and algebra to coding theory and cryptography. The component-based system has many parameters, and the interaction of these parameters may cause the existence and failure of the design. The study of such designs and their applications has been an active field of research over the last few decades. Dr. Ghosh investigates the construction (done in his research work), and optimality criteria (by various FMCDM procedures) of the breaking point, of these designs. Besides these, Dr. Ghosh used to teach and interact with the students on different fields of mathematics and their applications. Apart from mathematics, Dr. Ghosh likes to play correspondence chess at chess.com.

Work Experience

Before joining UPES, he worked in various organizations related to undergraduate studies from 2007, as a Lecturer and was later promoted to Assistant Professor. Dr Ghosh was involved in Master's degree courses from 2019 to 2021. In his teaching experience, he has taken classes on the special requirement at NIT, Durgapur for the B.Tech. 1st and 3rd Semester batches on a contract basis. 

Research Interests

Dr. Debashis Ghosh is interested in working on various Combinatorial Designs and aligning abstract algebra together towards application on various codes and cryptographic fields.

Teaching Philosophy

The experience Dr. Ghosh has achieved by taking a variety of courses, ranging from beginning undergraduate to advanced graduate ones. In the lower division classes, he emphasizes the use of various methods and techniques, while making sure that the students can select the most appropriate one(s) in each situation. Since these students need the most assistance from the teacher, He constantly encourages them to ask questions and to come to his office hours. In the upper division classes and honors classes, Dr. Ghosh emphasizes mathematical proofs and the importance of being rigorous. He also takes into account the special interests of the students, that is, whether they want to apply mathematics to various areas such as computer science, to teach mathematics, or to do research in mathematics. Thus, he illustrates the material with appropriate examples related to the interest. He also shows his students how the material leads towards current research problems and enhances their confidence to address such problems, sometimes by using the computer also.
