Education plays a vital role in building the future of our nation by transforming lives and communities. We have several educator heroes who help students aim high and achieve their potential, often meeting and overcoming considerable challenges along the way. Recently Delhi based MT Research & Educational Services (MTRES) came up with Teaching Excellence Awards (TEA) 2018, to recognize the monumental role teachers play in our society as they instil a desire to learn and achieve and create tomorrow’s leaders. Meet one of the awardees, Dr. Subhas Chandra Misra, Associate Professor, Department of Industrial and Management Engineering, IIT Kanpur, who has been honoured with Outstanding Teacher Award in MTRES TEA 2018.
Dr Subhas Chandra Misra is a PhD from Carleton University, Canada, and a PDF from Harvard University, USA. He has experience in both academia and industry. Before joining IIT Kanpur, he had worked for several years in different industries including Indian Telephone Industries Ltd (India) and Nortel Networks (Canada). He is also an Advisor at Indo Canada Education Council. He has been elected a Fellow of Institution of Engineering and Technology (U.K), a Fellow in Institution of Engineers and a Fellow in Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers.
His research interests include Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Healthcare Management, Personalized Medicine, Business Process Management, Project Management, Managing Supply Chain Services, Business Analytics / Data Analysis, Change and Risk Management, E-Governance and Information Systems. He has authored more than 100 peer reviewed papers which have received high citation index. His papers have been published in reputed international journals (of high impact factor) published by extremely reputed publishers like Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, IEEE and Emerald.
Dr. Subhas Chandra Misra has developed innovative models in several emerging areas of Information Systems Engineering and Information Technology Management. He did pioneering research in the emerging field of personalized healthcare management, which bears the promise of a paradigm shift in the entire healthcare system. He has been the first to investigate the feasibility of large scale implementation of personalized medicine in India. He devised unique models for monitoring software quality, right from the inception of the software development life-cycle. He also proposed an innovative agent oriented modeling technique for risk analysis and control in software projects.
He has been the first to carry out scientific research on adoption of agile software development practices in an organization. This has led to significant improvement of the process quality and customer satisfaction.

He did path breaking work on mobile cloud networking for efficient energy management. He has been the first to establish the moderating effects of trust, risk and security on the adoption of cloud-based services in various establishments.
He took the lead to devise an intelligent energy-efficient scheme for smart grid cyberphysical systems using coalition-based game theory. This contribution is very useful in a real-world smart city environment for handling issues related to load-management, frequency and voltage fluctuations in the grid. In view of changing demands of labour market and growing availability of wide range of education and training in the higher / technical education sector, his research on online counseling, as an e-government intervention and quality framework for credence-based informational services are landmark contributions in e-governance and information management.
