I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. Before moving to Kanpur, I was an NSF Postdocotoral fellow with Prof. Gareth Roberts. My PhD was from the School of Statistics at the University of Minnesota, Twin-Cities working with Prof. Galin Jones.

I work in the general area of Bayesian computation and specifically focus on Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. My collaborators and I develop theoretically founded and practically relevant tools for MCMC output analysis (see software tab). I am also interested in the theoretical properties of Markov chain samplers including rates of convergence.

Students: If you’re interesed in working with me, see students tab.
