Biography

Dr Gour C. Karmakar is a Senior Lecturer at Federation University Australia, specialising in multimedia signal processing, big data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), and cybersecurity, including trustworthiness measures.

Dr Karmakar is currently undertaking a number of industry-funded projects with partners. These include looking at spam email categorisation with Oceania Cyber Security Centre and Westpac Bank, investigating numerical control algorithms for the truck of the future with APRINTERN and MaxiTRANS, and a research grant scheme exploring water quality monitoring through the IoT.

Gour is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, has published over 153 peer-reviewed research papers, and in 2011 received a prestigious ARC linkage grant. He has successfully supervised 14 PhD and four Masters by research projects. In 2007, Gour was nominated for the best researcher at Monash University’s Gippsland Campus (now Federation University), from which he obtained his PhD in information technology in 2003.
