I am currently looking for postdoc positions that start in Fall 2019.

I expect to graduate soon, and am looking forward to my next position (see update below)!
New: From December 2018 to September 2019, I will be a postdoc in the Department of Computer Science at Georgetown University, where Justin Thaler is hosting me.


Research interests

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

Theses and projects



Student Seminars

We have a weekly student seminar organized in our department. A list of past speakers, along with their titles and abstracts can be found here. Please do let me know if you work in an area that you feel might be of interest to our school, if you're dropping by TIFR and would like to give a student seminar here, I'll try to arrange something! Alternatively, you can contact Anamay, who is in charge of organizing the student seminars.
