Anand Srivastava did his M.Tech. and Ph.D. from IIT Delhi and is currently working in IIIT Delhi as Professor in ECE department since Nov. 2014 and also Director in IIIT Delhi Incubation Center. I am also Adjunct faculty in Bharti School of Telecom Technology at IIT Delhi. Before joining IIIT Delhi, I was Dean & Professor in School of Computing and Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, HP, India from Jan. 2012 to Nov. 2014. Prior to this, I was with Alcatel-Lucent-Bell Labs, India as solution architect for access and core networks for 2.5 years. My initial stint (∼ 20 years) was with Center for Development of Telematics (CDOT), a telecom research center of Govt. of India where I was Director and member of CDOT Board. During my stay in CDOT, I provided technical leadership and motivation to team of engineers engaged in the development of national level projects in the areas of Telecom Security Systems, Network Management System, Intelligent Networks, Operations Support Systems, Access Networks (GPON) and Optical Technology based products. Majority of these projects were completed successfully and commercially deployed in the public telecom network. I also carried out significant research work in the Photonics Research Lab, Nice, France, under the Indo-French Science & Technology Cooperation Program on “Special optical fibers and fiber-based components for optical communications” during 2007-2010 in different phases. I was also closely involved with ITU-T, Geneva in Study Group 15 and represented India for various optical networking standards meetings. Currently, I am driving VLC/LiFi standardization activities under the aegis of TSDSI. My research work is in the area of optical core & access networks, Vehicle-to-vehicle communications, Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) architectures, and Visible light communications.
