Welcome to my homepage.
Currently I am a Courant Instructor in the Department of Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (New York University) .
I obtained my Ph.D in 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Rick Durrett from the Department of Operations Research & Information Engineering at Cornell University . Before that I completed my Bachelors (B.Stat) and Masters (M.Stat) in Statistics with a specialization in Mathematical Statistics and Probability from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata in India.
My primary research area is probability theory and its applications. My research interests include random networks, stochastic spatial models, first-passage percolation, percolation, as well as processes that arise in applications to physics and biology.

- Persistence of Activity in Threshold Contact Processes, an "Annealed Approximation" of Random Boolean Networks (with Rick Durrett).
