I have recently moved to the Department of Statistics, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign as an Assistant Professor. Please visit my Illinois website here: publish.illinois.edu/naveen

I obtained my PhD at the Department of Statistics, University of Michigan under the guidance of Prof. Xuming He and Prof. Vijay Nair . Prior to that I pursued my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. 

My research interests include High Dimensional Data, Variable Selection, Bayesian Computation, Large-Scale Computational Models, Functional Data Analysis, Censored Data  and Quantile-Based Inference. I am also passionate about teaching and I aspire to be a faculty in the future to be able to do both research and teaching.

One of the most rewarding experiences for me to be in Statistics is the opportunity to collaborate and learn from scientists from other disciplines including Biology, Medicine, Atmospheric and Climate sciences.

On the personal side, I enjoy  nature, music, photography, travelling and volunteering.  Please visit my personal page to know more.
