About Me

I am a Research Scientist in the Data and Decision Sciences Group at TCS Innovation Labs, which is part of TCS Research. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. My Ph.D. research advisors were Professor Amit Kumar and Professor Naveen Garg. My primary area of expertise is Theoretical Computer Science (TCS). This involves design and analysis of efficient algorithms and determining the computational complexity of problems. My broad research interests are:

In my previous life, I worked as a Technical Lead at Yahoo! Research and Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation, and as a Software Design Engineer at Microsoft Corporation and Novell Inc. I also did internships at IBM Research and Yahoo! Labs. I completed my Master of Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Automation, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and Bachelor of Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, both in Computer Science and Engineering. I had the privilege of working with Professor Samiran Chattopadhyay at Jadavpur University and Professor Ramesh Hariharan at IISc Bangalore, who is the Co-founder and Chief Technology officer of Strand Life Sciences.

I was born and brought up at Bidhannagar (Salt Lake City), Kolkata. I studied till my class 10 in Bidhannagar Government High School, from where I passed Madhyamik Pariksha (Secondary Examination). I studied in St. Xavier's College, Kolkata (Wikipedia article) for my standard 12. From here, I passed Uchcha Madhyamik Pariksha (Higher Secondary Examination).

My wife Sushmita is an Assistant Professor in the Cryptology and Security Research Unit, at Indian Statistical Institute Kolkata. My uncle Dr Debi Prasad Pal is a Senior Advocate practicing in the Supreme Court of India. My brother-in-law Professor Kanai Chandra Paul is the Head of the Department of Printing Engineering in Jadavpur University.

For prospective graduate students and interns
Please don't send me emails regarding admission or internship in IIT Delhi. I am not in charge of the admission process. Instead, look at the relevant website. If you absolutely have to contact somebody, a faculty member will be in a much better position to help you. If you are interested in a job or internship in TCS Innovation Labs, please send me a mail. I will forward it to the appropriate persons for further consideration.
