I have been a graduate student at CSAIL and a member of Prof. Bonnie Berger's research group. My research interests broadly lie in the area of computational biology. Over the last few years, I have been particularly interested in protein interaction networks. My PhD dissertation, which was on this topic, is available here.
Apart from this, I've also spent some time working in quantitative trading (LinkedIn profile). The two fields turn out to require surprisingly similar skills: an expertise in working with large amounts of very messy data and an ability to design robust models that can explain the data.
Before MIT, I worked at Accelrys, a bioinformatics & cheminformatics company. I received a M.S. degree from Stanford University, where I was part of Prof. Jean-Claude Latombe's group. I received my undergraduate degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur and went to high school in Bhilai, a smallish town in central India. I used to blog fairly actively, though I haven't gotten back to it in a long while.
