Welcome to my homepage.
I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Hunter College and a member of Doctoral Faculties at The Graduate Center in The City University of New York (CUNY). Before joining CUNY, I was a Post-doctoral Fellow at University of Missouri. I completed my Ph.D. (2014) in Computer Engineering from University of Central Florida. Prior to that, I received my Master of Technology (2008) from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India and Bachelor of Technology (2006) from Institute of Engineering and Management of West Bengal University of Technology, Kolkata, India.
