About Me


I am currently a postdoc in CSE at University of Washington, Seattle, working with Prof. Sham Kakade.

My research interests are in the areas of Clustering, Crowdsourcing, Convex Optimization, Machine Learning and Statistical Inference.

I graduated from the Department of Electrical Engineering, California Institute of Technology (Caltech). I was adviced by Prof. Babak Hassibi.

I was supported by the Faculty for the Future fellowship from 2013-2015, awarded by the Schlumberger Foundation.

Before Caltech, I obtained my undergraduate degree (B. Tech) from Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) with a major in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Physics.
