I was born in 1976, and grew up in Calcutta (Kolkata), India. I studied in Scottish Church Collegiate School (1-10 grade) and St. Xaviers College (11-12). I did my Bachelor (B-Stat, 1998) and Masters degree (M-Stat, 2000) from Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta. I came to UNC, Chapel Hill in 2000 for my Ph.D. I got my Ph.D. in Statistics under the supervision of Prof. Amarjit Budhiraja in 2005. I joined the Statistics Dept at Iowa State as an Assistant Professor in 2005. I have been living in Ames, Iowa since then.
