Academic and Research Achievements: Dr Sen's research interest has been in the areas  of Algorithms and Theoretical Computer Science. The work in his MS thesis resulted in the well-known parallel sorting algorithm called Shearsort and his PhD thesis made significant contributions to the area of randomized techniques in Computational Geometry. He has continued research in a variety of algorithmic areas including randomized data-structures, dynamic graph algorithms, approximate shortest path problems, cache-efficient techniques, geometric optimization problems and clustering algorithms. Several of his algorithms are among the best known in the literature for the corresponding problems. 
Awards and Honors: Sandeep Sen was the recipient of AICTE career award (1998) and IBM Faculty Partnership award (2004,2005). He was elected Fellow, Indian Academy of Sciences (Bangalore) in 2007.
