About MeMachine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University. My doctoral advisor was Prof. Andrew W. Moore. My thesis research has been aimed at analyzing theoretical properties of different proximity measures arising from random walks, and using them for designing fast algorithms. Here is a link to my thesis.
Before joining Carnegie Mellon, I was an undergraduate at the Computer Science and Engineering Department in Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, where I spent four years. During my undergrad years I also worked with Prof. Charles Isbell as a summer intern in Georgia Tech. I grew up in Calcutta, and my native language is Bengali.
