I am a Research Scientist at Nokia Bell labs, Cambridge UK, working with the social dynamics team. I am mainly interested in projects that deal with quantification of human processes from web scale data using methods from complex networks, machine learning and computer vision. I was a King’s India scholar at King’s College London, where I worked on my Ph.D. in computer science at the Department of Informatics, under the guidance of Dr. Nishanth Sastry. I have graduated with a Masters of Science (M.S.) degree from University of California at Santa Barbara - USA, majoring in signals processing and networks, and a Bachelors of Engineering (B.Eng) from University of Pune - India, majoring in Electronics engineering .
