About:

Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Science & Mathematics at Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Guwahati. I joined IIIT Guwahati in January, 2022. I have completed my M.Sc degree from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, 2013. I have finished my PhD degree from Indian Institute of Technology Patna, 2019. After that I was a Visiting scientist at Indian Statistical Institute Kolkata from December, 2018 to September 2019. I was a Post doctoral fellow at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur from October 2019 to January 2022.

Research Interests:

Lifetime Data Analysis, Censoring Schemes, Estimation Theory, Step-stress Life Testing, Cure Rate Modeling, Rank Set Sampling

Teaching:

At IIITG, I have taught the following courses:

  • MA305: Optimization Techniques. This course is meant for third year of BTech Computer Science & Engineering.
