I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. Previously, I was an NSF Postdocotoral fellow with Prof. Gareth Roberts at the University of Warwick. My PhD was from the University of Minnesota, Twin-Cities working with Prof. Galin Jones.
My research interests are: Markov chain Monte Carlo, output analysis for stochastic simulation. Recently, I’ve also been interested in stochastic optimization algorithms.
