I joined Berkeley in January 2012 after a six month post-doc at the Wharton Statistics Department, University of Pennsylvania. I finished my PhD in statistics from Yale University in June, 2011. My dissertation advisor was Professor David Pollard. I joined Yale in August 2006 after completing the B.Stat and M.Stat degrees from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

My research interests include nonparametric and high-dimensional statistics, shape constrained statistical estimation, empirical processes and statistical information theory. Here is a list of my publications.
