I received my Phd from Computer Science and Engineering Department at University of Washington, Seattle, advised by Venkatesan Guruswami. I then spent a year Microsoft Research New England as a postdoc. Earlier, I got my Dual degree(Btech/Mtech) in computer science from IIT Madras.

My research interests lie somewhere in the union of optimization, complexity theory, approximation algorithms, hardness of approximation and statistics.
