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, evolution of and dynamics on such networks, stochastic spatial and growth models, disordered systems, percolation, first-passage percolation as well as the related processes that arise in applications to biology, social science, physics, computer science and other disciplines.
Recently, I have also got interested in statistical inference and statistical machine learning problems based on network data, which arise in many applications.
