About Me

Hi! I am a PhD student at POTIOC Team, Inria Bordeaux. Before that, I received MS (By Research) from the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Kharagpur. The topic of my MS dissertation was Interactions with Smartphones and Smartwatches: Context-Awareness, Text Entry Interfaces, and Input Beyond Touch. I obtained my B.Tech in Information Technology from West Bengal University of Technology, Kolkata.

My area of research interest is Human Computer Interaction (HCI), particularly input and interaction techniques.
