Budget Constrained Online Experimentation, Heterogeneous Treatment Effects, Multi-Armed Bandits
I work on developing methods and frameworks that help decision-makers (Marketer, Clinician or Policy-maker) better conduct A/B/n testing experiments (Randomized Controlled Trials) and also optimally target subjects and treatments in a budget-constrained, heterogeneous treatment effect environment. These questions fall in the line of literature related to Heterogeneous Treatment effects and Multi-Armed Bandits. I use a mix of Statistics, Machine Learning, and Causal Inference to solve the above problems.
Before moving to Minneapolis, I worked at Google as an Automation specialist in Google Search Anti-Abuse team, playing cat and mouse with bad guys on the web. Before that, I completed Masters’ and Bachelors’ in Aerospace Engineering with specialization in Computational Fluid Dynamics from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
When I am not doing research or grading assignments, I am either in the gym or riding my onewheel.
