Independent Research Scientist
Northern Virginia Section of IEEE Information Theory Society, USA
Debabrata Saha is a Research Scientist who recently completed a teaching assignment in NIT, Karnataka, India as an Adjunct Professor. Before this, he taught for 21 years as Tenured Member of a faculty, and, thereafter, worked as President of a consulting firm, both in USA. He is a former Chairman of Washington D.C.–Northern Virginia Section of IEEE Information Theory Society, USA. His academic background includes degrees in Science– BSc, Physics (Calcutta University), Technology – BTech, Electronics (Calcutta University), Applied Science – MASc, Communication (University of Toronto), and Engineering – PhD, Computer, Information and Control Engineering (University of Michigan).
His research interests include ‘Theoretical Physics’ and ‘Information Computing’. His interest in Physics led to the finding of Natural Field, a new fundamental force of nature which needs further exploration. A deterministic measure of information, different from conventional Shannon measure, introduced by him, led to an Information Computing Machine (ICM) capable of analyzing an entire genome and revealing the set of working symbols of genome language. This set is the ‘First Footprint of Nature’ in its design of human beings. His current research emphases include Natural Field and Development of ICM with application to Genomics and Health Research.
