I am a quantitative disease ecologist interested in questions related to health of animal and human populations; particularly in using computational, mathematical and statistical approaches in testing ecological hypotheses. I has developed two open-acess computational tools: INoDS allows inference of networks underlying infectious disease spread; random modular graph generator generates random networks with tunable network modularity.
I received a BS in zoology and biotechnology in 2009, from the University of Pune, India, and a MS in natural resources management in 2011 from TERI university, New Delhi, India. After graduating, I briefly worked as a research associate at IISER Pune with Sutirth Dey. In 2012, I moved to Georgetown University, where I am now a fifth year PhD candidate. My PhD advisor is Shweta Bansal.
