I am currently a TRIPODS Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

I have recently received my PhD in Computer Science from Rutgers University under the supervision of Swastik Kopparty. Before Rutgers, I spent two years at Chennai Mathematical Institute.

I am broadly interested in Discrete Mathematics, Probability, Coding Theory, Pseudorandomness, etc..

## Teaching

nothing at present :)

## Other

I gave a talk at the STOC 2020 workshop on Recent advances in Discrepancy and Applications on discrepancy of random and pseudorandom hypergraphs. Slides are available in the link.

I will be joining as a postdoc at UIC starting Fall 2020

I recently defended my thesis
