I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Data Sciences and Operations (Statistics Group)at the USC Marshall Business School since June 2021. My research centers around developing statistical methods for nonEuclidean data, examples being distribution and network valued data and time varying object data. Here are links to my CV, Google Scholar and Math Genealogy.
In Fall 2021 I attended the Geometric Methods in Optimization and Sampling workshop at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing. From September 2020-June 2021, I was a Stein Fellow in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University. Prior to Stanford, I was a postdoc working with Prof. Hans-Georg Müller, who is also my PhD advisor, and Prof. Jane-Ling Wang in the Department of Statistics at University of California, Davis. I finished my PhD in June 2019. Before that I obtained a Bachelor of Statistics in 2012 and a Master of Statistics in 2014 from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

In my spare time I enjoy urban sketching. I love being outdoors, and given any opportunity I like to find myself on a ridge or a peak or a pass or a lake.
