I am a data scientist currently working at the Transdisciplinary Institute in Applied Data Sciences at Washington University in St Louis. I develop and employ computational methods - NLP, machine and deep learning, network analysis and experiments - to analyze communication dynamics, information diffusion, political media and behavior on social media platforms. I enjoy working on the applications of data science and am currently building deep learning models to identify attack advertising on YouTube. My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and I also create tutorials on a variety of data science topics.

I completed my PhD in Social Data Analytics and Political Science from Pennsylvania State University, an MSc in Economics from the Univesity of Warwick and a BA in Economics from Miranda House, University of Delhi. I was also a Data Science intern at Aware. Before getting my PhD, I worked as an economist at TERI, an Energy & Environment think tank.
