I am a post-doc at the LCA2 lab of EPFL IC. I defended my PhD thesis in Oct’21 at Technical University of Darmstadt. Previously, I obtained my bachelor’s and master’s degree from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. I am broadly interested in analyzing network performance using tools from Probability theory.
