About Me

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Notre Dame in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering advised by Dr. Tim Weninger. I am also a member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA).

My research centers on the intersection of formal language theory and network science. More specifically, I study graph generation models using graph grammars.

Before this, I worked on community detection in complex networks at the Social Network Analysis Research Group at Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata, India.
