Debankur Mukherjee is a Prager Assistant Professor in the Division of Applied  Mathematics at Brown University working with Prof. Kavita Ramanan.

His research spans the areas of applied probability and stochastic networks, with applications in queueing theory, performance analysis, random graphs, randomized algorithms, and probabilistic combinatorial optimization. His primary focus is to address fundamental theoretical challenges that arise in large-scale systems, such as data centers and cloud networks, and provide key insights in understanding various trade offs in designing efficient systems. Mukherjee received the Best Student Paper Award at ACM SIGMETRICS 2018 for introducing a stochastic comparison framework to study the impact of underlying network topologies on the performance of load balancing schemes in large-scale systems.

Dr. Mukherjee graduated with cum laude distinction from Eindhoven University of Technology in 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Sem Borst and Prof. Johan van Leeuwaarden.

Starting August 2019, he will join ISyE at Georgia Tech as a tenure-track assistant professor.
