I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Ústav informatiky AV ČR, Czech Academy of Science. I am a part of the "Combinatoric Group". Recently, I am working in Structural properties of visibility in terrains and farthest color Voronoi diagrams. I have done my PhD at Indian Statistical Institute. I am fortunate to have Prof. Subhas C. Nandy as my PhD supervisor.

I am a traveller by heart, a geometer by profession. I believe in learning through observations. The lively aspects of our life, the dose of variety in it inspires me. I am happy to preserve those moments in the digital frame of mind.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference."

Robert Frost

Tell me and I forget,

teach me and I may remember,

involve me and I learn.
