Srinjoy Mitra received his B.S. degree in physics and electronics from Calcutta, India and his M.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India. After spending a short time in the electronics industry (in India and Japan), he received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Neuroinformatics, ETH Zurich in 2004. Between 2008 and 2010 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA.
He then joined the medical electronics team at IMEC, Belgium and worked there as a senior scientist until early 2016. At IMEC he had taken up leadership roles in various industrial and public-funded projects primarily related to bio-potential recording. Electro-encephalography (EEG) measurement ICs developed by him have been successfully validated in a clinical environment and is now commercialized. Dr. Mitra also led multiple projects on neural implants for central and peripheral nervous systems. This resulted in the development of generations of CMOS neural recording probes with the highest electrode density. Dr. Mitra returned to academia as a Lecturer in the Biomedical Engineering Division at the University of Glasgow.
In 2017 he moved to the Integrated Micro and Nano Systems, University of Edinburgh as a Senior Lecturer. His research interests are low-power sensor interfaces, medical/neural electronics, neuromorphic systems and in engineering education. Dr Mitra is the Program Director for the MSc in Sensors and Imaging System. He is also a member of Edinburgh Neuroprosthetics Lab. He is the convenor of the Decolonisation Working Group in the College of Science and Engineering.
