About Me

I am a PhD scholar (TCS research fellow) in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Kharagpur, India, and a researcher at the L3S research center in Leibniz Universität Hannover. I work under the supervision of Prof. Niloy Ganguly. I have worked in areas like machine learning, information retrieval, recommender systems, and allocation mechanisms. My current research interests fall in bias & fairness aspects of algorithmic systems. Broadly my works try to answer questions like how to bring fairness and ethics into algorithmic systems.

Currently, I am a part of Complex Networks Research Group at IIT Kharagpur and also the L3S Research Center at LUH. Prior to this, I have completed my bachelor's degree (B. Tech.) from IIT Jodhpur, and also briefly worked as a supply chain and operations planning consultant at Steelwedge Software (now a part of E2open LLC.).

☆ My Homestate: Odisha ☆

I am from the state of Odisha located on the eastern coast of India. Odisha is known for its ancient temples, dense jungles, serene beaches, sublime arts, and much more. If you are planning for a vacation, Odisha can be your next destination. Here is a small video on some attractions of Odisha. You can find more details on the official site of Odisha Tourism.
