I was, until recently, a PhD candidate at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). I completed my thesis under the supervision of Prof. Peyman Milanfar and am now employed at Pelican Imaging Corporation in Mountain View, California. I obtained an M.Tech in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Techonology, Bombay (IITB) in 2006 and a B.Tech in Information Technology from the University of Kalyani (from B.P.Poddar Institute of Management and Technology) in 2003.
I grew up in the city of Calcutta, now renamed Kolkata, where I completed my schooling from St. Xavier's Collegiate School in 1997 and later St. Xavier's College in 1999.
My research interests lie in the domain of Image and Video Processing, specifically but not limited to denoising, interpolation, super-resolution and inpainting. I also enjoy dabbling with topics in Computer Vision and Graphics.
My ideal way to spend my spare time is on the football (soccer) field. I try my hand at racquetball too. I was also one of the few graduate students who represented UCSC as part of the UCSC Badminton team. Among other interests, I enjoy music, movies (especially comedy) and reading books (usually fiction and biographies).
