Rajendra Mitharwal is an Assistant Professor in the area of Computational Science at DAIICT. His research interests span the areas of computational electromagnetics. Especially, he applies the preconditioning theory and fast solution of boundary element methods to complex electromagnetic scenarios.
He received the B.E. degree in electronics and telecommunication from the University of Mumbai, Mumbai, India, in 2005, and the M.S. degree from Utah State University, Logan, UT, USA, in 2011. His master thesis dealt with a numerical model to understand the time evolution of a wake structure around a CubeSat moving in a plasma with transonic speed. To solve the equations of plasma, the numerical difference equations were obtained by discretizing the fluid equations of the plasma along with nonlinear Poisson’s equation.
He was with Tata Consultancy Services, Mumbai, as an Assistant System Engineer, for four years, prior to pursuing the master’s degree. He received the Ph.D. degree in Engineering Sciences from the Department of Microwave, Institut Mines–Télécom (previously known as École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne), Brest, France, in 2015. This doctoral work contributed towards new computational techniques specifically conceived for the design of invisibility cloaks for conducting or dielectric bodies at radio frequency. These techniques are based on the evolutionary and inverse algorithms using surface or volume based integral equations. In his postdoctoral research work, he developed novel integral equation formulation arising in the Electroencephalography for handling anisotropic brain models and explored the fast solving techniques based on kernel free methods, FFT and direct solvers for the forward and inverse problems of Electroencephalography.
