About me

I am a postdoc in the Department of Computer Science at Georgetown University, where Justin Thaler is hosting me.

Before this, I was a research scholar in the School of Technology and Computer Science at TIFR Mumbai and my advisor was Arkadev Chattopadhyay. A (slightly outdated) bio can be found here.


  • Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2018 from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai.
  • M.Sc. in Applications of Mathematics (with a specialization in Computational Mathematics) in 2013 from Chennai Mathematical Institute, Chennai
  • B.Math. (Hons.) in 2010 from Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore

    Research interests

    I am broadly interested in the area of computational complexity theory. More specifically, I have an interest in approximation theory, communication complexity, Boolean circuit complexity, and the connections between them.
