• Introduction

    I am an Assistant Professor of Data Sciences and Operations in the University of Southern California. I am a member of the USC Marshall Statistics Group. I graduated from Stanford University with a Statistics PhD in 2013, after defending this thesis. My advisor at Stanford was Iain Johnstone. Prior to that, I studied at Indian Statistical Institute for my Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

    Research Interest: High-dimensional Statistics, Empirical Bayes Methods, Predictive Inference, Connections between Estimation & Prediction theory.
  • Teaching

    In this Semester, I am teaching Applied Business Statistics (BUAD 310).

      • Section: 14921R,   Location: HOH EDI,   Schedule: MW, 2.00-3.10pm.

    Class notes and lecture slides are available from their respective course-homes in BLACKBOARD -- USC's e-learning platform. I will assign online homework through MyStatLab interface. Please look at the class syllabus and blackboard announcements for all other information regarding the class.
