Biography

I graduated in Mathematics Honors from the University of Calcutta in 2009. I obtained a Master's degree in Mathematics & Computing in 2011 and awarded a PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2015 from Indian Institute of Technology (ISM) Dhanbad, India. My thesis was concerned with mathematical studies of surface (seismic) wave propagation in different layered media. After my PhD, I joined in Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata as Post-Doctoral fellow (Feb 2015 - July 2016). I worked as a faculty member at the Assistant Professor level in the Discipline of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology Indore (July 2016 – Jan 2019). I have been awarded various prestigious awards like Newtown-Bhabha International Fellowship in 2018, National Post-Doctoral Fellowship in 2016, Dr. D.S. Kothari Post-Doctoral Fellowship in 2016, etc.

Presently, I am working as Royal Society-SERB Newton International Fellow in School of Computing and Mathematics, Keele University, Staffordshire, ST5 5BG, United Kingdom.

Research and scholarship

I am working on Numerical Mathematics (Partial differential equations, Stability analysis, Simulation). My research is concerned with the mathematical modelling, analysis and numerical simulation of PDEs and their application in multi-field problems likes, wave propagation, asymptotic analysis, solid mechanics, and mathematical seismology. Moreover, I am equally interested on the study of earthquake source parameters and statistical analysis of World earthquakes in order to get most efficient earthquake forecasting analysis.
