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.
My research lies in the interdisciplinary domain of computational social science and its applications in precision medicine, working with real-world problems from natural language processing, machine learning, statistical modeling, and information retrieval. I am particularly interested in improvising techniques and solutions to improve health and wellbeing, ones which are robust and adaptable with the changing social dynamics. My current work involves sensing mental health in situated communities such as college campuses and workplaces, where I specialize in complementing multi-modal sensing technologies with social media as a passive sensor to predict and characterize the attributes of mental wellbeing.
