Personal profile


Rig is currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher with Department of Health Technology of Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Before joining DTU, Rig has also worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with University of Luxembourg and Research Assistant with Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy.

Rig has received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Electronics Engineering with European Doctorate Label from Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy, in April, 2018. He was a visiting researcher with the Bar-Ilan University, Ramat Gan, Israel, in 2016. Rig has received his Bachelor of Technology and Master of Technology degree in Computer Science and Engineering, on 2007 and 2012 respectively, from India.


Rig's current research interests are EEG Signal Processing, BCI and Deep Learning. During his doctoral research his primary research goals were directed towards the application of deep learning methods in biometrics. As a Doctoral Fellow with Roma Tre University, he has contributed towards the physiological biometric traits such as EEG signal, Finger-vein and Face. His other research interests are image and video processing, steganography and steganalysis, signal processing, pattern recognition and machine learning.
