Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Welcome to my homepage. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
My research lies in the field of Probability Theory and its interactions with models of Statistical Physics. In particular I am interested in First and Last passage percolation, Random growth models, Stein's method, Concentration inequalities, Spin glasses, Random Graphs and Random Matrices.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics in 2010 from UC Berkeley under the supervision of Sourav Chatterjee and Steve Evans.
I was a Courant Instructor and Simons Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU in 2010-2013 and a Harrison Early-career Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick in 2013-2014.
Before that, I did my undergraduate and masters study from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata with specialization in Mathematical Statistics and Probability.
