About me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate at the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis at Yale University. My research spans a broad range of topics in data science, quantitative modeling and epidemiology including: dynamics of infectious diseases, network epidemiology, social networks, ecology of disease spread and health policy. I investigate these topics using a combination of computational, mathematical and statistical approaches.

I completed my PhD dissertation at Bansal Lab. I also have a MS in Natural Resources Management. Before joining Bansal lab, I briefly worked as a research associate at IISER Pune with Sutirth Dey.
