Mishra joined IIT Guwahati as a Senior Lecturer in December 1996. He became Assistant Professor in April 1997, Associate Professor in May 2000 and Professor in October 2004. From April 2003- April 2005, he was the Faculty In-charge, Training and Placement and from 31 March 2006 to 6 July 2008, he was the Dean of Academic Affairs of IIT Guwahati.
Prof. Mishra has about 200 research publications in peer reviewed journals and conferences. He has guided more than 90 students. He is a man of heat transfer with specialization in thermal radiation. Apart from his main research in the area of radiative heat transfer, currently his research involves porous media combustion for cheap and clean combustion and use of transient radiative transfer analysis for defect/disease diagnosis. Since 2005, he is also working on applications of the lattice Boltzmann method to thermal problems, and during the short time, in this area, his research group has made notable contributions.
