Summer School on Social Networks
(May 29th to June 2nd 2017 @ IIT Ropar)


My research interests include social networks, crowdscoured knowledge building and computational social sciences. I enjoy working on problems that interest me. My current interests are mostly steered by my PhD students and collaborators, which include "Predicting a Viral meme" (Yayati Gupta), "Understanding Crowdsourced Knowledge buidling" (Anamika Chhabra - Scientist), "Secure Computation" (Varsha Bhat) and "Network Sampling" (Akrati Saxena).


After research, teaching makes the major component of my academic life. I enjoy experimenting with different teaching methodologies. I particularly enjoy traveling and giving talks on my research work apart from motivational talks of popsci genre. For more details on my talks, check my blog.
