Dr. Anish Deb (b.1951) did his B. Tech. (1974), M. Tech. (1976) and Ph.D. (Tech.) degree (1990) from the Department of Applied Physics, University of Calcutta. He started his career as a design engineer (1978) in industry and joined the Department of Applied Physics, University of Calcutta as Lecturer in 1983. In 1990, he became Reader and later became a Professor (1998) in the same Department.
He has retired from the University of Calcutta on 31st October, 2016.

His research interest includes automatic control in general and application of ‘alternative’ orthogonal functions like Walsh functions, block pulse functions, triangular functions, hybrid functions etc., in systems and control. He has published more than seventy one (71) research papers in various national and international journals and conferences. He is the principal author of the books ‘Triangular orthogonal functions for the analysis of continuous time systems’ published by Elsevier (India) in 2007 and Anthem Press (UK) in 2011, ‘Power Electronic Systems: Walsh Analysis with MATLAB’ published by CRC Press (USA) in 2014, ‘Analysis and Identification of Time-Invariant Systems, Time-Varying Systems and Multi-Delay Systems using Orthogonal Hybrid Functions: Theory and Algorithms with MATLABÒ’ published by Springer (Switzerland) in 2016, ‘Control System Analysis and Identification with MATLABÒ : Block Pulse and Related Orthogonal Functions’ published by CRC Press (USA) in 2018.
