I am an M.S./Ph.D. student in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. I am advised by Profs. Tauhidur Rahman and Deepak Ganesan in the MOSAIC Lab. My research interests lie broadly in the areas of ubiquitous computing and multimodal sensing of health and wellbeing.
My recent work involves using non-invasive behavioral measurements to predict neural activation and the onset of mental disorders. Previously, I worked on studying the effect of sleep and biobehavioral patterns on multidimensional cognitive performance using commercial wearables. The work explored diurnal patterns of alertness and cognitive throughput among various occupational groups.
Prior to joining UMass, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Shiv Nadar University in India. I also spent a semester as a visiting undergraduate researcher at the School of Computing and Information Systems, Singapore Management University, where I was advised by Prof. Archan Misra.
|Jan 2021||Our paper on the effect of sleep and physiological measures on cognitive performance has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Medical Internet Research!.|
|Jan 2020||I’ll be returning as the TA for CS328 (Mobile Health Sensing and Analytics) this Spring!|
|Oct 2019||I’ll be attending the Grace Hopper Celebration from 2-4 October in Orlando, FL! I’m also volunteering as a Hopper.|
|Jul 2019||I was awarded the Lori A. Clarke Scholarship in Computer Science from CICS, UMass Amherst.|
