I am a fourth year PhD student working with Dr. Sofya Raskhodnikova in the Algorithms and Theory Group at the Department of Computer Science, College of Arts and Sciences, Boston University. I am broadly interested in research in Algorithms, with a focus on Sublinear algorithms, Streaming algorithms and Graph algorithms.

I completed the first three years of my PhD (2014 - 2017) at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the Pennsylvania State University, advised by Dr. Sofya Raskhodnikova. Before joining Penn State, I completed my Master's degree (2011 - 2014) from the School of Technology and Computer Science at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India, where I worked with Dr. Kavitha Telikepalli. I obtained by B.Tech. degree (2007 - 2011) from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Calicut.
