Postdoctoral Research Associate

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Welcome !!!

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at the MIT Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) and MIT Center for Research on Equitable and Open Scholarship (CREOS) hosted by Prof. Roger Levy. I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Center for Science of Science and Innovation (CSSI) and The Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO), Northwestern University working with Prof. Dashun Wang. I received my PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, where I was advised by Prof. Animesh Mukherjee. I was also the recipient of IBM PhD Fellowship and Microsoft Research India PhD Fellowship Award.

My research interests lie in the interdisciplinary area of Human-centered Data Science where I study the mechanisms and dynamics of various complex systems. In particular, my major research focus is on studying the impact of success and failure on professional careers; the global landscape of science fundings, publications, and their interplay; and several aspects of Open Science. I also aim to design tools to better understand social phenomena which are aggravated by the misuse of social media platforms (e.g., detection and mitigation of hate speech and incivility).
