I am a BS-MS undergraduate students from IISER PUNE. I am currently working on my final year thesis project under the guidance of Prof. Amit Apte.
My work is on considering a model for the temporal dynamics of population size of organisms with multiple life stages (egg, larva, pupa, and adult stages in insects) which are influenced by the nonlinear density- dependent feedback mechanisms operating at different stages and the interactions of these mechanisms. The model involves several independent and interacting parameters. The main aim of the project is to device Markov Chain Monte Carlo based methods in order to estimate parameters of this model, based on the laboratory data available. It mainly focuses on using synthetic data to study the performance of these MCMC methods .
