About me

I am a fourth-year graduate student in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) where I am working with Profs. Kannan Ramchandran, Thomas Courtade and Michael Mahoney. Before coming to Berkeley, I received Bachelors (with distinction) and Masters in the department of Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur in 2015 and 2016, respectively. I've also been an Undergraduate researcher in summers’14 at Syracuse University and at EPFL in summers’15.

I spent the summer of 2019 as a research intern at AI Research at Apple, Cupertino, with the objective of devising algorithms for accelerating distributed training of deep neural networks. I am also a co-organizer of the BLISS Seminar, talks at which span information theory, machine learning, statistics, control, and optimization. Please send me an email if you are interested in giving a talk.

Feel free to contact me regarding anything that interests you on this site.


My research interests include

  • Distributed Optimization

  • Information and Coding Theory

  • Randomized Numerical Linear Algebra

I am happily working on problems that leverage ideas from randomized numerical algebra and information and coding theory to speed-up distributed computation on inexpensive cloud-based services. You can find a list of my publications here.
