Biography

Dr. Karmakar obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA in 2011. After 2011 he worked as a Research Scientist first and then as a Senior Research Scientist in  a data reasoning research-driven company funded by US Government Agency. Afterwards he joined projects from Boeing in Redmond, WA as a senior data architect. Later he served as Chief Research Engineer in Samsung R&D Institute in Bangalore in India in 2014 and became Director and head of R&D in a UK-headquartered media campaign and intelligence company. Before joining the National University of Ireland Galway as a postdoctoral researcher in March 2020, he served as head of research and engineering in budding technological venture and as well he worked with startups in a head of analytics role. In his long trail of experience, he worked in many directions of research and development and Natural Language Processing and grounding, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Big data practice, Data Engineering as well in the Internet of things would be few notable to mention. During his rise as a research lead, he conducted lecture and presentation sessions time to time in the corporate environment in eminent research and technical topics. His formal teaching experience dates back to his PhD and MS curriculum in the Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, USA while he has started with Elementary Statistics, Computers and Applications and then taught Computer Programming Principles, Data Structures and Operating Systems. The last two mentioned courses were attended by bachelors as well masters students; designing the course materials, assignments, exams and projects to deliver lectures, designing assignments and exams as well as projects and grade them accordingly were his responsibility. During that time he also received the award of ‘Best Teaching’ from the Department of Computer Science in Georgia State University as well as Best Research’ award and prestigious 2011 Student Leader of the Year award from Georgia State University.

Dr. Karmakar has a long history of research experience in multimodal data science. He has served more than fifteen conference sessions in the leading research conferences over the years and ICDM, WI/IAT would be a couple to mention amongst them. He has also organised a few workshop sessions in these leading conferences and served on the program committee of many conferences as well. Dr. Karmakar has given many talks in universities and conference sessions as well over the last decade.
