Before that he has worked as a Research Associate (post-doctoral) in a DST-sponsored extramural research project related to Scientometric research headed by Prof. Vivek Kumar Singh at Department of Computer Science, Banaras Hindu University during September 2020 to September 2021. He is also serving as a member of the editorial board of Journal of Scientometric Research (JSCIRES) and had reviewed articles for many esteemed journals.
Hiran has got a diverse academic background that equips him with experience and skills to handle endeavors that require interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary explorations. He holds a B.Tech. in Electronics and communication Engineering, awarded by Cochin University of Science and Technology. He also obtained M. Tech in Technology Management from University of Kerala. After that, he pursued doctoral research in Futures Studies and carried out Scientometric research as specialization and was awarded Ph. D from University of Kerala in 2020.
After doctoral thesis submission, he served as a guest faculty at Department of Futures Studies, University of Kerala for a brief period in 2019-2020 and handled subjects like Systems Engineering and Data visualization techniques for M. Tech (Technology Management) students and M. Sc (Data Science) students respectively. He also conducted non-funded research at the ‘Scientometric Lab’ (Order No. Pl. A1/Annual plan 16-17/Imp.plan/16 dtd. 29/11/2016), Department of Futures Studies, University of Kerala during that period.
