I am a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, working with Prof. Jure Leskovec. My research lies at the intersection of machine learning, data mining, and computational social science. I focus on characterizing, modeling, and mining large scale data for knowledge extraction and discovery.

My PhD dissertation (Computer Science, University of Maryland) was awarded the prestigious SIGKDD 2018 dissertation award runners-up and Larry S. Davis Doctoral Dissertation Award. Prior to that, I was awarded Dr. BC Roy Gold Medal by IIT, Kharagpur.
