Sikkim is a landlocked hill station in the Himalayan terrain. The state borders Nepal to the East, China's Tibet Autonomous Region to the North and East and Bhutan to the Southeast, while the state of West Bengal lies to the South. Sikkim was a British protectorate, before merging with Indian union following a referendum in 1975. With around 7,00,000 populations as of 2017, it is the least populous state in the country. Sikkim is nonetheless geographically diverse due to its strategic location in Himalayas; the climate ranges from subtropical to high alpine; and Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest peak, is located on Sikkim's border with Nepal. It proves itself to be a tourism hotspot owing to its culture, natural scenery, hill beauty and biodiversity.

Dr. Priya Ranjan (M’1997) graduated from IIT Kharagpur (EE, 1997, Est.: 1954), West Bengal, India and earned M.S. (EE) and Ph.D. (ECE) degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park, USA (Est.: 1856) in 1999 and 2003, respectively. He was introduced to control theory by well-known and researchers including Prof. K.B. Dutta of EE-IITKGP, and to nonlinear dynamics by Prof. Soumitro Banerjee ( Bhatanagar Awardee). To pursue his passion in discovering new ideas in control theory and applications, he joined the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR, Bangalore), a DRDO lab under the tutelage of Prof. M. Vidyasagar. To continue and expand his studies, in 1997 he moved to the Computer Aided Control Systems Engineering (CACSE) lab at the Institute for Systems Research (ISR) at the University of Maryland under the guidance of Prof. E.H. Abed where he would spend the next twelve years in Maryland in various capacities. There, his work was supported by leading government funding agencies including NSF and DARPA, apart from multiple grants from various branches of the US Department of Defense. His work in nonlinear analysis of networking protocols pursued a non-conventional narrative, where non-linearity is an intrinsic property of network technologies, and the system plays the role of protagonist. His work revealed fabulous interactions of system dynamics with delays, which are naturally present in remotely operated networked systems. These interactions generate a beautiful canvas of behaviours in infinite dimensions. He managed to discover a constant which is the current limit for global stability in the presence of arbitrary delays, work which proudly stands on the shoulders of research legends like Kelley, Sharkovsky, Mallet-Paret and Ivanov, to move towards more general and realistic engineering cases. His latest interest is in biological computation and oncological image processing. He has been helping biologists and pathologists by designing and implementing user interfaces friendly to their way of working and generating innovative results for the next generation of analysis for bio-professionals. He truly believes that a multi-way productive collaboration with biologists, public health professionals and clinical scientists with bio-informatics and bio-computational suite of tools will lead to the next knowledge revolution for humanity towards facilitation of better health services. He has received many large project awards from some of the most reputed agencies like National Science Foundation (NSF)-USA, DARPA (credited with leading development of the Internet)-USA, Delhi University, DBT, DST-RFBR, ICMR etc. He has authored more than fifty research articles in different international conferences around the world.
