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. I obtained my PhD in statistics from 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 (MCMC). I develop theoretically motivated and practically relevant tools for MCMC output analysis (see Softwares tab) and am also interested in mathematical properties of Markov chain samplers including rates of convergence.
