About me

I’m a Ph.D. candidate at Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington, advised by Prof. Sewoong Oh. I enjoy exploring and characterizing phenomena, fundamental quantities, and general laws that emerge at scale in science. Last summer, I interned as a quantitative analyst in the Equities group at The D. E. Shaw Group. Next fall, I will join The D. E. Shaw Group in New York City as a full-time quantitative analyst.

Before starting my graduate school, I spent two rewarding years as a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research Lab - India. There, under the mentorship of Dr. Praneeth Netrapalli and Dr. Prateek Jain, I delved into some research problems related to non-convex optimization in machine learning. Before this fellowship, I earned my B. Tech. in Mathematics and Computing from IIT Guwahati in 2017. These experiences played a crucial role in shaping my subsequent research interests and career pursuits.

In my spare time, I enjoy learning Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, Modern Finance, Economics, and Vedanta.
