I am a Lecturer in Mathematical Data Science at the Queen Mary University of London. I am also engaged with the data-centric engineering programme at The Alan Turing Institute. Before joining Queen Mary University London, I held a postdoctoral position at the Imperial College London and National Postdoctoral Fellowship in India. I obtained PhD degree in Statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute. I have several years of industry experience as a Data Scientist in the Analytics sector providing training and analytical solutions to global clients across industry verticals. I am passionate about solving real-world business problems and issues related to the humanitarian crisis.


I am currently teaching Probability & Statistics II (MTH5129).


Research Interests:

My primary research interests lie broadly in statistical data science and methodology, motivated by real-life challenges arising from complex systems, social science and public policy. In particular, my doctoral work deals with computational and inferential issues in time-dependent stress-strength interference. In postdoctoral research, I worked on modeling and analysis of incomplete longitudinal data with missingness and zero-inflation. Currently, I am working on causal inference and its application in transport networks. I am also engaged in cross-disciplinary work, focusing on data-analytic settings in sports and environmental sciences.
