She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Operations Management and Quantitative Techniques Area , Indian Institute of Management, Indore. She holds Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and specializes in Applied Mathematics. Prior to joining here, she was a post-doctoral researcher in the team OPALE, INRIA, Sophia Antipolis, France, and worked on mathematical models of pedestrian and traffic flow. She holds an M.Sc. degree in (Applied) Mathematics from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Centre for Applicable Mathematics, Bangalore, and B.A. (Honours) in Mathematics from Lady Shri Ram College for Women, University of Delhi.
She teaches a number of Applied courses, majorly concentrated on mathematical foundations in business and workplaces, across various programs at IIM Indore and conduct research on the following topics in Applied Mathematics:
- Hyperbolic conservation laws:
Numerical methods for hyperbolic conservation laws, which satisfy important physical model properties, model real-life problems ranging from granular matter to crowd dynamics.
- Machine Learning:
Machine learning algorithms for predicting employee and organizational mental health.
