Namaste! I am a Doctoral Candidate (All-But-Defense) in Statistics (started Fall 2013). I hail from Kolkata, one of the cosmopolitan, mega cities in India.
Apart from Statistics, my real-life passion is YOGA, one of the prolific ancient wisdom offered to the entire world by the wondrous country India. I am a daily practitioner, and currently pursuing 300-Hour Lila Yoga Teacher Training program. Besides, I enjoy hiking, trekking, backpacking, water-rafting, caving, and any sort of adventurous outdoor activities, biking, digital photography, origami, playing games and sports, e.g., badminton, racquetball, table-tennis, etc. I also love interacting and meeting with people, learning new languages (now working on Spanish and Italian) and volunteer for leadership roles in different activities, both curricular and extra-curricular.
