Abhishek Parida helps students learn the fundamentals of Computer Science and Information Technology and is the organizer of the newly created Data Science curriculum. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Computers, a Masters and a Doctorate in Physics. He worked in Gravitational Wave Data Science; the work included various statistical tasks, like signal processing, parameter estimation, and sky-map creation. The results primarily involved parameter estimation of stochastic Gravitational-Wave background and were produced in the LIGO Science collaboration. Based on various plausible models, motivated by Physics, they built software pipelines for separating different Astrophysical and Cosmological signatures in the Gravitational-Wave background. He is keen on programming and computational algorithms and is open to interdisciplinary collaboration.
