I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Computational Genomics group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. I work in the intersection of Population Genetics, Applied Mathematics and Algorithms. My research revolves around making sense of complex, high dimensional population genetic datasets by developing scalable algorithms.
Prior to joining IBM, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN in 2019 under the guidance of Prof. Petros Drineas with a primary focus on developing computational methods in population genetics. Prior to that, I obtained my Masters in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY in 2016.
I grew up in Kolkata, India which is also known as the "City of Joy". For completeness please see my personal webpage.
