I am a PhD student at Cardiff University with OneZoo CDT program. My research focuses on creating both deterministic and stochastic mathematical models that explore the transmission of viruses within indoor spaces. These models are intended to assist policymakers and indoor space managers in making informed decisions during epidemics. I have a Bachelor's degree in Pulp and Paper Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India, and a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics from The University of British Columbia, Canada. My Master's thesis delved into characterizing the reproductive value for age-structured population models, which was applied to comprehend disease dynamics in varying environmental conditions. Prior to my Master's program, I worked as data sciene profession in industry for 6 years.
