I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India in 2011 and my Master’s degree, also in Chemical Engineering, from Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur, India in 2013. After that, I moved to New Jersey for my Ph.D. studies at the Chemical & Biochemical Engineering department in Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. I finished my Ph.D. at the end of 2018 and started as a postdoc in the McClean lab in the following month.
My research has involved developing predictive mathematical models to study and predict the behavior of various kinds of processes and generate experimental data (or in some cases use experimental data generated by collaborators from both academia and industry) to calibrate and validate these models. I have modeled different types of processes such as agglomeration in liquid based particulate systems, pharmaceutical granulation processes, or disintegration and dissolution of tablets as a part of my Ph.D. dissertation or various collaborative industrial projects or my summer internship at Genentech. As a postdoctoral research associate in the McClean lab, I am working on developing a predictive mathematical model of cross-talk between two map kinase signaling pathways in yeast. The model is to be calibrated using dynamic single cell data generated in our lab.
