I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science and Automation at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Arindam Khan. Prior to this I did my Bachelor’s from Shiv Nadar University, Noida, and am grateful for the guidance of Prof. Sandeep Sen for my undergraduate project.

My interests lie in the general area of Theoretical Computer Science and I am currently working on finding approximation algorithms for geometric optimization problems. I enjoy thinking about problems in graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization, and look forward to exploring more of TCS.

Outside of TCS, I spend a lot of time speedcubing, and am also taking training in the Indian percussion instrument - Tabla, under the tutelage of Sri. Amit Mishra of the Banaras Gharana. Lastly, since you didn’t ask, I use arch btw. You can find out more at my official WCA page and my dotfiles repo.
