Vinod holds a Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Government Engineering College Ajmer, India and Master of Technology degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. His Master of Technology thesis work was on development of digital signal processing algorithms to mitigate impairments in coherent optical communication. His work was mainly focused on algorithms to mitigate polarization impairments and fiber nonlinearity induced phase modulation for high capacity coherent optical communication systems.
Apart from his academic career, he has two years of industrial experience in R&D department of Sterlite Technologies Limited, India, one of the leading optical fiber and telecom products manufacturer. At Sterlite Tech., he worked on characterization of different optical fibers over 100G DWDM long-haul test-bed. Currently, he is a PhD student at the Technical University of Delft (DTU) in the Fiber Optic Nonlinear Technologies (FONTE) project.
