About:
I am an Assistant Research Professor in the Mathematics department of the University of Connecticut. In June 2022, I obtained my Ph.D. in Operations Research from Cornell University, under the supervision of Prof. Pierre Patie. Prior to that, I received both Bachelor’s (2015) and Masters’s degree (2017) in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.
Research Interests: My research interests include the spectral analysis of non selfadjoint Markov semigroups, studying their rate of convergence to equilibrium, and obtaining relevant functional inequalities for them.
