About Me

I’m a Ph.D. student at the Computer Science Engineering discipline of IIT Gandhinagar, and Prof. Nipun Batra supervises me. My research interest is in Ubiquitous Computing. My current focus is designing wearables that measure health parameters and exposure to air pollutions. I did my schooling in Shillong and grew up there, although I was born in Assam.
