I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society, Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, hosted by Prof. Cynthia Dwork. I am excited to be joining the Statistics Department at Harvard as an Assistant Professor in Fall, 2020. I am broadly interested in high-dimensional statistics, statistical machine learning, algorithmic fairness and connections to causal inference.

In Spring, 2019, I received a Ph.D. in Statistics from Stanford University, advised by Prof. Emmanuel Candès and supported by a Ric Weiland Graduate Fellowship. Prior to joining Stanford, I completed a Bachelor of Statistics in 2012 and a Master of Statistics in 2014 from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. Here is a link to my CV
