I am a faculty member in the School of Technology and Computer Science at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).

I did my Ph.D under the guidance of Manindra Agrawal from Chennai Mathematical Institute. Following my Ph.D I was a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research India for a year hosted by Neeraj Kayal and Satya Lokam. Subsequently, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University hosted by Amir Shpilka before joining TIFR.

My academic interests are in:

  • Pseudorandomness and derandomization
  • Arithmetic circuit complexity
  • Anything with an algebraic flavour

WACT 2016: In February 2016, Amir Shpilka, Michael Forbes and I organized the 4th Workshop on Algebraic Complexity Theory. The website has lots of reference material, a list of accessible open problems, (sessions were recorded and videos are available on the webpage) and I would highly recommend people who are interested to visit the site.
