"The unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in describing the universe - the fact that it works at all is sufficient enough for me" - Eugene Wigner

I am currently working as a Ph.D. student in the Laboratory of Natural Information Processing, Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology Gandhinagar, under the supervision of Prof. Manish K. Gupta. I am working on Codes over finite commutative rings and DNA codes. I am also interested in Post- Quantum Cryptography, Quantum codes, Commutative Algebra and Combinatorics.

Before joining Research Program at DA-IICT, I joined the Department of Mathematics, Surya Sen Mahavidyalaya (under University of North Bengal) as a Guest Faculty for August 2016 - July 2017.

Previously, I studied at the Department of Mathematics, Visva- Bharati, Santiniketan, where I completed my Bachelor's degree (2013) and Master's degree (2015) in Pure Mathematics.

I was visiting scholar at the DNA Nanodevices Unit, Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology(IZI), Leipzig, Germany from Dec 09, 2019 to Dec 23, 2019 to carry out the work related to the awarded DST-DAAD project "VecDNAStor".

Our research group "Gupta Lab", led by Prof. Manish K Gupta, has been elected as a member of the International DNA data storage alliance. Full details can be found here https://dnastoragealliance.org/
