Gupta is an award-winning theoretical epidemiologist, professor at Oxford University, as well as the acclaimed author of five novels, including our own So Good in Black.

See write-ups in the Calcutta Telegraph and the Business Standard.

You can also check out Gupta’s most recent science writing, her Kindle Single Pandemics: Our Fears and the Facts.
