I am a medical doctor who has done Ph.D. in Biomedical engineering from IT-BHU. I enjoy Editing here (since November 04, 2006) and being a Citizen! Presently Founder and Director of Supten Institute. My Research interests include Automated Clinical Diagnostic Systems and e-learning. My homepages are: [1], [2] and [3]. I am also the Chair and Chair, Education Committee of HL7 India.

I have been among the first wave of Editors invited to join Citizendium. Subsequently, I have been the first Secretary and the second Chair of the Editorial Council.
