About Me

I am a PhD student of Computer Science at The University of Iowa advised by Dr. Bijaya Adhikari. I also am a part of the Computational Epidemiology Research Group and the AlgoEpi Reading Group that discusses techniques and methods about algorithms, data mining, and Machine Learning that can be applied to problems related to the spread of infections.

Research Interest

My primary interests lie in the intersection of Machine Learning and Deep Learning with applications in Finance and Healthcare. Currently, I am exploring the domain of Epidemiological Modelling and am trying to also learn Graph Neural Networks and Graph Convolutional Networks. My primary programming language is Python and I have good knowledge of Tensorflow and PySpark. I also have a fair bit of experience in model risk validation for Financial Institutions during my stint as a Consultant at Solytics Partners LTD

Other Interests

I was a serious Scrabble player as a kid but now just play it for fun. I am an avid reader of the non-fiction genre, with Jefferey Archer, Amitav Ghosh, and Saradindu Gangopadhyay being some of my favourite authors. I love to sing and used to have an acoustic music band called Tritiyo Purush back while I was pursuing my undergraduate degree. I also love to play table tennis and badminton (although I am not good at them).
