I grew up in Kolkata in the Indian state of West Bengal. As a young boy I had a deep interest in science but especially in Mathematics. I subsequently went on to pursue my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Indian Statistical Institute. In my undergraduate studies, I developed a deep interest in Statistics and Data science, which culminated in a Masters and PhD in Statistics from Duke University.
Apart from statistics, I love puzzle solving, movies and good food.
During my time as a PhD student, I performed methodological work on Brain Structural “connectomics” which deals with the structural aspects of the brain network in humans as well as other species. As part of my dissertation work, I did a lot of work on network analyses.
As a member of the Chapkin Lab, I would like to leverage my statistical knowledge in general and my experience with network modelling in particular to make methodological contributions in the analysis of microbiome and exfoliome data obtained from ongoing and future projects in the lab.
