I'm a PhD student at the department of Mathematics. My PhD research aims to get an optimal estimation by using new kind of Kalman filters for the dynamic models by studying different noise distributions.

First supervisor:  Dr. Saptarshi Das 

Second supervisor:  prof. Stuart Townley. 

My research interests include Bayesian methods, time series analysis and computational statistics.
