 How to pronounce my names?     NILAVRA      BHATTACHARYA

I am a Ph.D. student at the School of Information, University of Texas at Austin, USA. My research interests span interactive information retrieval, applied computer vision in HCI, and health informatics.

The crossover between design and programming has always interested me, and I’ve been lucky enough to work on a number of such intellectually challenging projects. I have enjoyed creating intuitive and elegant web applications, used for complex operations.
