 Debasis Mitra (born November 3, 1944 in Kolkata) is an IndianAmerican mathematician, known for his numerous contributions to the theory of communication systems, control theory and queueing theory. He got his B.Sc. (1964) and Ph.D. (1968) in electrical engineering from University of London, on an Atomic Energy Research fellowship (196567), while he was simultaneously affiliated with the Control systems center at the University of Manchester. His work focused on control of nuclear power systems.He then joined Bell Labs as a member of the technical staff (1968), working on semiconductor networks, diffusion models for service adoption andtraffic modeling. Mitra was head of Mathematics of Networks and Systems research division (198699), and was vice president of the math and algorithmic science center. Mitra has served as editor and as part of the editorial board of numerous scientific publications, and was visiting professor at University of California (1984). In 2003, Mitra was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for his "contributions to the modeling, analysis and design of communication networks." He retired from Bell Labs in 2013 and joined the Columbia University Electrical Engineering department. His current research interests are in the scientific foundations of policy that impact engineers and engineering systems, especially in models, analyses and syntheses of organizational and individual interactions. Instances are network neutrality, network economics, and the science and management of innovations and knowledgecreation. He holds 21 patents, and, as of November 11, 2015, his publications have been cited 11,332 times. His hindex is 55. (en)
