Vishnu Monn Baskaran is a Senior Lecturer with the School of IT, Monash University Malaysia. He received his B.Eng. (1st class Hons.) and M.Eng. Degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from University Tenaga Nasional, Malaysia in 2004 and 2007, respectively. In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. in Engineering from Multimedia University, Malaysia. He was with Multimedia University from 2009 to 2017, and prior to that, a R&D engineer with Panasonic R&D Centre Malaysia from 2005 to 2009. His research interests include multidisciplinary parallel computing research, predictive analytics and statistics with special interest in Markov model. He has successfully solicited research grants worth RM 1.25 million as principal/co-principal investigator and he has published various research papers in the area of network and video processing. He is also well experienced in academic teaching for programming courses. These courses include C/C++ programming and Parallel Processing & Programming. He is a recipient of an excellent teaching award from Multimedia University. He has also published a book chapter specifically for parallel programming using the C programming language.

In addition, Vishnu regularly provides technical consultancy to the industry. Notable consultancies include Motorola, Robert Bosch, Sony Electronics, MIMOS, Texas Instruments, Keysight, Contraves, and Cyber Security Malaysia.
