I’m actively seeking PhD positions (Fall 2023)!
My current research interests span the
Computational Social Sciences and
ICT4D. Specifically, I’m interested in misinformation, social media and information flow in online communities. I’m currently interning at
Microsoft Research India under Anirban Sen and Joyojeet Pal (UMich Ann Arbor). I’m also studying quantitative features of social networks and computer-mediated communication with Debayan Gupta. Previously, I’ve been a part of the
MPhasis Lab (under Mahavir Jhawar and Subhashis Banerjee) and
BharatSim (under Debayan Gupta).
I graduated magna cum laude from
Ashoka University with a Gold Medal in Computer Science. Beyond academics, I’m a competent artist, photographer, archer and an incompetent pianist.
