About me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in IIT Bombay since January 2020. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Max Planck Institute for Software Systems at Kaiserslautern, Germany. I was hosted by Manuel Gomez Rodriguez. I received my PhD from Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kharagpur. My supervisor was Prof. Niloy Ganguly. During that time, I was a part of the Complex Network Research Group (CNeRG) at IIT Kharagpur. My PhD work was supported by Google India PhD Fellowship 2013.

Prior to this I did my BTech in Electrical Engineering and MTech in Control Systems Engineering both from IIT Kharagpur.
