Soummya Kar (E 2010)
Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
BioSoummya Kar received a B.Tech. in electronics and electrical communication engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, in May 2005 and a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, in 2010. From June 2010 to May 2011, he was with the Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. He is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. His research interests include decision-making in large-scale networked systems, stochastic systems, multi-agent systems and data science, with applications in cyber-physical systems and smart energy systems.
Ph.D, Electrical and Computer Engineering
BTech, Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering
ResearchMy interest spans several aspects of stochastic adaptive control, decision-making, learning and inference in large-scale networked dynamical systems. Major technical thrust areas include stochastic analysis, distributed stochastic approximation, distributed algorithms, large deviations. Application domains include power networks and smart energy systems.
