Mandar Chitre

Associate Professor & Head

Mandar Chitre is currently the Head of the ARL at Tropical Marine Science Institute (TMSI) and an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Prior to joining the ARL in 2003, he headed the technology division for a Singapore based telecommunication software company for 5 years.

Mandar was awarded a Ph.D. by NUS for his research in the field of underwater acoustic communications in warm shallow waters. Prior to this, he obtained a Masters degree from NUS developing simulations and algorithms for Ambient Noise Imaging, and another Masters degree in Bioinformatics from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Mandar's research interests include underwater acoustic signal processing, underwater communications & networking, ambient noise imaging (ANI), and cooperative underwater robotics.

Mandar serves as an IEEE OES technology committee co-chair of underwater communication, navigation & positioning. He has also served on several editorial boards, including the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering, and the IEEE Communications Magazine, and on many conference TPCs such as IEEE OCEANS, IEEE ICRA, ACM WUWNet, IEEE ICCS and OTC Asia.

Apart from academic interests, Mandar has a passion for photography, computing technology, scuba diving, chillis, wine and contract bridge. He also enjoys a good game of squash and badminton.
