I graduated with a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 2015. My Ph.D. dissertation, directed by Professor Nengjun Yi, focused on developing innovative statistical methods for high-dimensional variable selection. Prior to UAB, I received my Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Statistics from the University of Calcutta and Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Statistics from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur.
