I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. I work in the Social Dynamics and Wellbeing Lab under the advisement of Dr. Munmun De Choudhury. I did my undergraduate in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, and hold an overall industry research experience of about 5 years.
I am interested in the interdisciplinary area of computational social science to examine and study individual and collective wellbeing through the lens of social media. My work draws on the methods from natural language analysis, machine learning, and statistical modeling to develop computational techniques and solutions that are robust and adaptable with the changing social dynamics. By complementing multi-modal data streams with social media to predict and characterize the attributes of psychological states, my research aims at sensing mental health focusing on situated communities.
