I am an Associate Professor in the Mathematics Group at the Chennai Mathematical Institute, India. My research interest focuses on solving problems of Bayesian Statistics, Machine Learning, Algorithms for Big Data, Quantitative Finance, and Environmental Statistics.
Before joining CMI, I worked at SAS from 2010-2013 as Software Engineer. I did my Ph.D. (2008) in Statistics, from the University of Connecticut, USA and did my postdoctoral work at Duke University and SAMSI, during 2008-2010. I did M.Sc. in Statistics from Calcutta University (2003) and B.Sc. from St. Xavier’s College, Calcutta (2001). In 2018, I was awarded the UK Commonwealth Rutherford Fellowship and visited Prof Sujit Sahu at University of Southampton.
My area of expertise is in Bayesian Statistics and Machine Learning. I also work in Quantitative Finance and Environmental Statistics.
