About me

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

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 currently (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.
