I have completed my PhD in Computer Science from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata in 2014. I am a certified Design Thinker from MIT Sloan School of Management. I have about 8 years of teaching and 13 years of research experience. My current research interests include Crowdsourcing, Big Data Analysis, and Computational Biology. I have published more than 80 research papers in various peer-reviewed journals, book chapters and proceedings of international conferences.

I received the Young Engineer Award from INAE (2018), Young Engineers Award from IEI (2016-17), BIRD Award from Bioclues (2015), Young Scientist Award from ISCA (2013-14), and won several best paper and best reviewer awards. I became an INAE Young Associate in 2018 and a Sir Visvesvaraya Young Faculty Research Fellow in 2015-16. I visited Stanford University, USA and University of Ljubljana, Slovenia for academic purposes. I am a member of IEEE, ACM and AAAI.
