Prasanta received his BE from Jadavpur University and his MSc from Indian Institute of Science, before joining the PhD program at USC in 2006. At USC he has had a short but exceptional career as a teaching assistant. He was a TA for just two academic years, yet he received the best TA award both times.
Ming Hsieh EE Systems Associate Chair Antonio Ortega said: "Students in his classes, among the most abstract and mathematical in the EE curriculum, benefited from his availability, his willingness to spend extra time helping them and his knack for understanding what might be confusing them." Ming Hsieh EE Systems Chair Alexander A. (Sandy) Sawchuk said: "Our faculty and students join me in congratulating Prasanta for his outstanding performance as EE teaching assistant."
