Statistics, machine learning, network analysis, neuroscience
My research interests lie in several fields of statistics including statistical inference of networks, high-dimensional statistical inference, clustering, semiparametric inference, and hypothesis testing. I am also interested in the application of statistical methods in neuroscience, genomics, and astronomy.
Before joining Oregon State University in Spring 2015, I was a post-doctoral research scholar in the Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley. I am also involved in projects with the Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I completed my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Peter J. Bickel. Before that, I completed B.Stat and M.Stat from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.
