Dr. Anish Jindal is working as an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Durham University, UK since Jan. 2022, fellow of Durham Energy Institute and is a visiting fellow in School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE), University of Essex. Prior to this, he worked as a Lecturer in CSEE, University of Essex from Mar. 2020 to Dec. 2021, and senior research associate at the School of Computing & Communications, Lancaster University, UK from Oct. 2018 to Mar. 2020. He completed his Ph.D., M.Engg. and B. Tech. degrees in computer science engineering in 2018, 2014, and 2012, respectively. He is the recipient of the Outstanding Ph.D. Dissertation Award, 2019 from the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and conferred with the IEEE Communication Society's Outstanding Young Researcher Award for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Region, 2019. He has also been a visiting researcher to OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology, Germany in 2019.

His research interests are in the areas of smart cities, data analytics, artificial intelligence, cyber-physical systems, wireless networks, and security. Some of the particular aspects of my research relates to resource aware computing, energy optimization, programmable and scalable networking, and wireless network & security. He has received funding from UK Research and Innovation (GCRF), Innovate UK (KTP), Alumnode, The Royal Society (International Exchanges), British Council (Going Global Partnerships), Durham Seed Corn and startup grant for some of his research ideas.

Many of his research findings are published in top-cited journals such as IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking, IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, IEEE Communication Magazine, IEEE Network, IEEE Internet of Things Journal, Future Generation Computer Systems, and Computer Networks. In addition to it, his research works have also been presented in various conferences of repute such as IEEE ICC, IEEE Globecom, IEEE WiMob, IEEE PES General Meeting, ACM MobiHoc, etc. He has served as General co-chair, TPC co-chair, TPC member, Publicity chair and Session chair of various reputed conferences and workshops including IEEE ICC, IEEE WoWMoM, IEEE INFOCOM and IEEE GLOBECOM. He is also the guest editor of various journals including Software: Practice and Experience (Wiley), Neural Computing & Applications (Springer), Computer Communications (Elsevier), IET Smart Cities (IET), and IJCS (Wiley). He has also delivered many invited talks and lectures in various international avenues. He is a member of the ACM, IEEE, and actively involved with various working groups and committees of IEEE and ACM related to smart grid, energy informatics and smart cities.
