PhD Student, Computer Science
Hello, and welcome to my webpage. I am a PhD student at the Laboratory for Networked Existence (NetXT) at Arizona State University, under the supervision of Dr. Arunabha Sen. Prior to joining ASU, I completed my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Computer Science, from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, India. I am an avid sports fan, with football (soccer to few, ugh) and basketball being my favorite sports. I love traveling, photography and music. Check out the countries I have visited in the map below (just getting started). You can create a map of your own here. Also, check out a few of my clicks on my Instagram account (link below).
My interests lie in the intersection of the domains of Graph Theory and Optimization. I am currently working on identifying sources of anomalies in complex real-world networks, utilizing the mathematical concept of Identifying Codes. A few examples would include, (i) identification of the sources of misinformation propagation in social networks, (ii) monitoring terrorist networks, (iii) Monitoring the health of critical power system equipments, etc. My works are mostly applicative in nature although I do have a couple of theoretical results sprinkled in them. Apart from Identifying Codes, I am a part of a team, currently working on developing various analytical models to combat the Opioid epidemic by generating future heat maps of the Opioid incidences accurately. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details, or better yet, if you simply want to chat. :)

During the summer of 2021, I was an intern in the Decision Support Systems (DSS) team at Carvana. I was responsible for designing multiple scalable graph algorithms to determine best possible routes, between origin destination pairs, on the Carvana Delivery Network. Moreover, I experimented with potential changes to the existing logistics codebase to reduce over-utilization of particular legs in the logistics network. Finally, I researched and formulated an approach to optimize the current timetable for Carvana's Last Mile Delivery satisfying multiple business and logistical constraints.
Currently developing novel algorithms for the unique detection of sources of anomalies in complex networks, by utilizing the mathematical concept of Identifying Codes. Examples of anomalies would include: fake news and cyber bullying on social networks, drug dealing and terrorism related activities, failures in critical infrastructure networks, etc. Additionally, my colleague and I are working with the Arizona state goverment for the development of analytical tools to predict future location of Opioid incidences.
