Computational Cosmology and Statistical Inference research group at IIT Indore is involved in developing state-of-the-art numerical simulations and analytical estimates to shed light on a new way of observing and constraining the Cosmic Dawn and Epoch of Reionization. If a region of ionized hydrogen of size > 1000 Mpc^3 is detected through future SKA (Square Kilometre Array) 21-cm surveys, follow up photometric and spectroscopic observations at infrared wavelengths with WFIRST and JWST will be able to constrain the contribution of the galaxies residing inside that region in its ionization. It will help us to constrain or rule out the different source models of reionization.
Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (PRIA) research group at IIT Indore is
primarily engaged in addressing research problems related to biometric recognition.
With the development of high-resolution fingerprint scanners, high-resolution
fingerprint-based biometric recognition has received increasing attention. Level-3
fingerprint features, which include very fine details such as pores, are generally
observable in fingerprint images having a resolution greater than 800 dpi. Pore
features have been found to be effective for fingerprint recognition. Accurate
detection of pores is crucial for biometric recognition using high-resolution
