Varun Jeoti, an Indian national, got his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT Delhi) in the field of acoustic wave devices (1992). While working towards his Ph.D., he worked on research projects sponsored by the Department of Electronics, Government of India in the Center for Applied Research (CARE), IIT Delhi as well as the Center for Systems and Devices (CSD), IIT Madras.

Later, he joined the Delhi Institute of Technology (now called Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology) and, thereafter, moved to Malaysia where he taught in Universiti Sains Malaysia and then Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. His research interests include SAW devices, sensors, and sensor networks as well as applications of wavelets in signal processing, communication and finite element method. He has supervised students doing their Ph.D. and Masters by research in the areas of MIMO-OFDM (4G – 5G applications), chaos based cryptography, reader based wireless sensor networks, SAW sensor-tags etc.

He led the communication engineering group in the department and later the UnWireD Solutions Center of the University. He obtained various research and consultancy grants from universities, government and industries like Intel and Petronas. He led the team that carried out the proof-of-concept to field testing of what is called WiDUCT Technology, for PETRONAS, a Malaysian Oil and Gas Fortune 500 company. He also explored the feasibility of various other technologies including CMOS compatible SAW devices as sensors, RFID tags, filters and resonators, for SilTerra foundry in Malaysia. He has acted in advisory capacity for various start-up companies in India and in Malaysia.

As the ERA Chair in Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia, he now leads a team that seeks to develop a Center of Excellence (CoE) in the area of stretchable and textile electronics (STRENTEX). His core belief for the team is to live a dream together in the spirit of voluntarism.
