I am currently an assistant professor at the computer science and engineering (CSE) department of IIT Madras. My primary areas of interest are in machine learning, statistical learning theory and optimisation.
I was previously a research scientist at IBM research labs and a post-doc at University of Michigan. I completed my PhD at the Computer Science and Automation (CSA) department of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore advised by Prof. Shivani Agarwal. I have been fortunate to work with Profs. Ambuj Tewari and Clayton Scott during my PhD and postdoc. Earlier, I finished my M.E. under the supervision of Prof. Chiranjib Bhattacharyya.
