Aritra Mitra

Assistant Professor



I received my Ph.D. degree in August 2020 from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University. Prior to joining Purdue, I received my M.Tech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 2015, and my B.E. degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata in 2013, both in Electrical Engineering. Before joining NC State, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, University of Pennsylvania.

The broad goal of my research is to enable reliable and efficient learning and decision-making in large-scale distributed systems, while contending with modern challenges related to computation, communication, and adversarial robustness. To meet this goal, my research draws on ideas and tools from Control and Optimization Theory, Statistical Signal Processing, Machine Learning, and Network Science.
