About me

Since the fall of 2012, I have been employed as a joint postdoctoral scholar with Dr. Bin Yu, at the Department of Statistics, UC Berkeley, and Dr. Erwin Frise, who is a biologist at the Department of Genome Dynamics, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Prior to this, I was a PhD student at the Department of Statistics, Yale University. My thesis adviser was Dr. Andrew Barron. I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees in statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

My research interests are diverse, involving both theoretical and applied statistics. Over the course of my academic career, I have had the pleasure of working on a range of problems in both areas. I am especially interested in problems in high-dimensional statistical inference. Apart from this, I am interested in problems at the intersection of information theory and statistics. I am also involved in interdisciplinary research, applying statistical methods to systems biology.
