About me: I joined MIT in July, 2015. Prior to joining MIT, I was an Assistant Professor at Columbia University (Dept of Statistics) Fall 2013 till 2015, where I was also affiliated with the Data Science Institute. I was a PostDoctoral Associate at MIT from 2012  2013, where my sponsor was Dimitris Bertsimas. I completed my PhD in Statistics from Stanford University in 2012, where my adviser was Trevor Hastie. I completed my BStat, MStat from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata in 2007.
Research Interests Statistical Machine Learning
 Applied Statistics and Analytics
 Convex and Discrete Optimization
 Large Scale Computational Algorithms
 Mathematical Programming I am broadly interested in topics at the interface of statistical modeling, optimization, computation and their interplay. This multidisciplinary approach often provides new and interesting insights about the behavior of statistical methods. I am interested in applications arising in recommender systems, oceanographic and climate sciences, others.
For StudentsTake a look at this link to get a rough idea of what I am generally interested in.
I am looking for motivated PhD students interested in any of the following areas: Statistics/Machine Learning/Optimization/Computation.
If you are at MIT, please feel free to shoot me an email if you are interested in discussing related ideas/problems.
