Hello everyone !! I am a Data Scientist at Paypal, Inc. I completed my PhD in Computer Science, from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Troy, NY in May 2015.
My advisor was Professor Petros Drineas. I also worked closely with Professor Malik Magdon-Ismail.
I obtained my Master's degree in Computer Science in December 2012 from RPI.
I earned a B.E. degree (Hons), from the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Bengal Engineering and Science University , Shibpur, India in 2010.

I worked as a Data Mining Scientist Intern at eBay/PayPal Inc in the summers of 2013 and 2014.

My broader research interests are in machine learning and randomized matrix algorithms. My work focuses on design and analysis of dimensionality reduction algorithms like random projections, deterministic and randomized feature-selection techniques for classification problems like Support Vector Machines and Regularized Least Squares Classifier, core-set construction for Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) and matrix factorization.. Apart from this, I have also worked on network analysis, ensemble model selection and imbalanced classification problems.
