Presently I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Prior to this, I was working as a post doctoral researcher in the Complex Systems Lagrange Lab, ISI Foundation, Italy. I received my PhD from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur with a thesis on self-organization of human speech sound inventories. My main research interests center around applying complex system approaches (mainly complex networks and agent-based simulations) to different problems in (a) human language evolution and change, (b) web social media, (c) information retrieval and (d) natural language processing.
