I obtained my undergraduate and master’s education at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, from 2005-2010, before moving to the Mathematics Department, University of Washington, Seattle, where I finished my Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Krzysztof Burdzy.

I was a Research Fellow in the Statistics Department, University of Warwick, UK, from November 2013-June 2016, working with Prof. Wilfrid Kendall, before moving to UNC.

Research Interests

Connections between probabilistic couplings and geometry, interacting particle systems, random walks in random environments, and random matrices.

Research Synopsis

I work in probability theory. My recent focus has been coupling, geometry and ergodicity of diffusion processes, dynamic random networks and interacting particle systems. I have also worked on random walks in random environments and random matrices.
