I am a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, working with Jure Leskovec. My research focuses on characterizing, modeling and mining large scale data for knowledge extraction and discovery. Most recently, I have focused on improving the social web ecosystem by building models and tools to identify online malicious actors.

I got my PhD in Computer Science from University of Maryland in May, 2017 and my B.Tech from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur in July, 2013. I was awarded Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy Gold Medal (best graduating all rounder) by IIT.
