Dr Pancham Shukla holds PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London, MPhil in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK), ME in Electronic and Computer Engineering and BE in Electronic Engineering from Sardar Patel University (India).  

Prior to joining London Met in 2007, Dr Shukla worked as a Research Fellow in The Applied Digital Signal and Image Processing Research Centre (ADSIP) at the University of Central Lancashire and as a Research Associate in Communications and Signal Processing (CSP) group at Imperial College London. While pursuing his MPhil in Centre for Signal and Image Processing (CeSIP) at the University of Strathclyde, Dr Shukla was involved in tutoring postgraduate courses in mathematical signal processing. Dr Shukla has been involved in teaching and research in India and UK since 1996.

Dr Pancham Shukla has supervised a broad range of projects and published papers in signal and image processing, electronic and communications systems. In recent years, Dr Shukla has been focusing on applications of signal and image processing in computer vision, machine leaning, robotics, internet of things and cyber security.

Dr Shukla has been involved with projects and PhD supervision and examination associated with School’s research centres: Centre for Communications Technology, Cyber Security Research Centre, and Intelligent Systems Research Centre.

Dr Shukla is a Vice Chair of the Research Student Progress Group and PhD Degrees at the School of Computing and Digital Media (from 2021).

Dr Pancham Shukla has designed, coordinated, and taught a broad range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules including work related and project-based modules for electrical and electronic engineering and computing related degree programmes since 1996.  In recent years, he has been involved in delivering modules such as: Electronics Systems, Signal and Systems, Signal Processing, DSP Applications and Control Theory, Logic and Mathematical Techniques, Introduction to Robotics and Internet of Things, Design and Communications Skills, Work Related Learning, Final Year Projects.

Currently he is developing two distinct Computer Vision modules – one for theComputer Systems Engineering and Robotics BEng course and the other for the Robotics with Artificial Intelligence MSc course.

Dr Shukla has been a cluster course leader for a portfolio of undergraduate engineering courses since 2013 and has a holistic knowhow of course curriculum design, course validation/periodic reviews, professional accreditation, and current higher education practices.
