About me

I am a graduate research student at College of Information and Computer Sciences, University of Massachusetts, advised by Professor Cameron Musco. My work focuses on approximating kernel methods, randomized algorithms and online learning. I am especially interested in the overarching goal of finding adaptive kernel functions for large datasets.

Prior to this I worked as Visiting Researcher in Electronics and Communication Sciences Unit, Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata with Professor Dipti Prasad Mukherjee. I completed my Masters in Computer Science in the year 2015, from the same institute. My primary research interest was in non-linear learning models for pre-image computation of image datasets.

In my leisure I enjoy playing guitar, badminton and birding. I am an ardent fan of absurdist fiction, philosophical fiction, epic fictions and graphic novels. I am absolute fan of Seinfeld and consider it the pinnacle of observational and conversational comedy.
