I am a Szegö Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University. Before joining Stanford I was a Ph.D. student at the Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley, advised by Allan Sly. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor and Master degrees in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

I am broadly interested in Probability Theory and its applications. I often work on probability questions coming from Statistical Physics or Theoretical Computer Science. More specifically, I have recently been working on first and last passage percolation, interacting particle systems, models of self-organized criticality among other topics. CV and research statement available upon request.

I am teaching Stats 218 in Spring 2017.
