I've just learned that our esteemed colleague, Prof. Suraj Bandyopadhyay
of the Indian Statistical Institute (Calcutta) passed away last September.
His student Dr. Suchismita Roy <[log in to unmask]> has given me the
Dr. Roy is looking for a postdoctoral position. I have suggested that he
write a note to this list, detailing his abilities and interests.
Suraj himself was a wonderful person and scholar. I benefited greatly from
our work together at the ISI and afterwards. He wasn't as well known as
he should have been, given the difficulties of getting financial support
to travel from Calcutta.
Here is a very incomplete summary of his work:
