Research Interest

I am currently reading game theory and mechanism design with Prof. Shruti and Prof. Ying Xu. I was previously reading both computational and theoretical aspects of stochastic systems with Prof. Jayendran and Prof. Hemachandra at IEOR, IIT Bombay. Prof. Kavitha often helped me in understanding this subject. I like reading optimization as well. I am also interested in the research work of

and I feel above list should expand in coming future. More broadly, I am excited by research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics, and its applications to scientific discovery.

I personally like reading papers which use ideas from probability and optimization together (few such papers can be seen here, here and here). Click here to see my resume.
