Invited Talks by Faculty Members of DEI, India
Dr. Shabd PreetAssociate Professor, DEI, India
Dr. Shabd Preet is teaching Cell Biology, Animal Physiology, Parasitology and Comparative Anatomy at under graduate and post graduate level. Her research interests are Parasite and Vector control using nanotechnology approach. She was awarded GATE and CSIR-NET in 1994. She was also awarded a five year project by UGC under the scheme of Part-time Research Associateship for Women under UGC IX Plan period from 1999-2004 on the topic,”Study on the snails and larval digenes as indicator of environmental health in aquatic systems of Agra ”. She has authored 26 research publications in journals of international repute and received several Best Paper Presentation awards. She has successfully completed one UGC Major Research Project and one DST Fast Track project. She is life member of Indian Society of Parasitology, National Environment Science Academy and System Society of India.
Dr. Amla ChopraAssistant Professor, DEI, India
Dr. Amla Chopra, Zoology, major interest is in the development of non-invasive vaccination strategies. The laboratory has been working on deformable biodegradable nanoparticles mediated non-invasive delivery of drugs and vaccines.The laboratory has shown the effect of higher order function like meditation on the general health assigning “immune status” as a “neural correlate” establishing correlation between high order signaling to brain affecting the physiological status of the human body. Chopra et al. Levels of Consciousness and immune-strength profile: A Correlation. Study of tubulin heterodimer and its function in quantum superposition and entanglement in microtubule mediated signal processing.
Prof. C. M. MarkanProfessor, DEI, India
Dr. C.M. Markan teaches Solid state Physics & VLSI Design. His field of interest includes Modelling the early development of adaptable cortical feature maps. He has pioneered some novel non-volatile CMOS circuit design that mimic the adaptive learning in cortical feature maps e.g. Ocular dominance, Orientation selectivity. Stereoscopic vision disparity based on cepstral filtering on ocular dominance maps is an interesting application developed by his Lab. Presently he is extending the Brain function modelling to include subtle sub neuronal levels to explore model for Brain-Mind duality in the domain of consciousness studies. His lab has poineered technique for ‘on demand’ remote access to electronics laboratory .
Dr. Bani Dayal DhirAssistant Professor, DEI, Agra
Dr. Bani Dayal Dhir is Assistant Professor at the Department of English Studies, Dayalbagh Educational Institute (Deemed to be University)Agra, India. Recipient of the prestigious Director’s medal in BA Hons.(English), MA (English) and M.Phil.(English ) programmes, her primary research interests include Literature , Theory and Consciousness studies. Her research endeavours are highly interdisciplinary in nature. Some of her notable contributions include “Graph Theoretic Field Modelling for Multi- Dimensional Literary Systems” (M.Phil. dissertation), “A Study of Emergentism and High End Complexity in Complex Literary Systems” (Ph.D. thesis). In recognition of her contribution to research in Systems Theory and literature, the Systems Society of India (SSI) honoured her with the National Young Systems Scientist award in 2009 and conferred its prestigious Raj Kumar Varshney award in 2017. She has travelled widely and has presented papers at various international and national conferences and won several best paper awards. As the Joint coordinator of Centre for Consciousness Studies, DEI from 2011- 17, she organized ‘East –West Forum’ for integrating the Eastern and the Western perspectives of consciousness at the annual international conference “The Science of Consciousness” organized by the Centre for Consciousness Studies, University of Arizona, USA. She has to her credit several research publications and creative non-fiction and poems in national and international journals. As the coordinator of (iNFORMATION-cOMMUNICATION- nEURO-cOGNITIVE-) Technologies Assisted Language Lab, (i-c-n-c-) TALL, DEI, she has developed a state of the art multilingual digital language laboratory cum research centre.
Dr. Dayal Pyari SrivastavaAssistant Professor, DEI, Agra
Dr. Dayal Pyari Srivastava is Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics and Computer Science, DEI. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Physics and Master’s degree in Electronics from Dayalbagh Educational Institute in 1985 and 1988 respectively. Subsequently, she obtained her Ph.D. on the topic “Graph Theoretic Quantum Field / System Modelling for Quantum Information / Computation Circuits and Algorithms” as a joint research scholar between DEI and IIT Delhi. She has been actively involved in physics education for over 20 years and has vast experience of science education.
She has published several papers in refereed international journals and co-authored a book entitled “Quantum Information Systems” published by McGraw Hill Education, particularly the R.K. Varshney Award of Systems Society of India for exceptional contributions to systems science, application, and technology. Her research interests include graph theoretic modelling modelling of quantum systems and consciousness studies.
