sandipanroyI am a fifth year PhD student at the department of Statistics at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I did my Bachelor’s study in statistics at Presidency University, Kolkata (earlier known as Presidency College, Kolkata) and earned my Master’s degree in statistics from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.I am a PhD candidate working under the supervision of Professor George Michailidis¬†and Associate Professor Yves Atchade. My current research is focussed on modeling data with complex high dimensional network structure and provide methodology for estimating the corresponding network structure using tools from graphical models and high dimensional inference. Some of the other areas I am interested in are graphical models, high-dimensional inference, nonparametric regression, bayesian inference.
