I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru. I started this position in January, 2014. Before this, during 2013, I used to be a Maître de Conférences at Collège de France in Paris. Previously (2009-2012), I used to be a postdoc at Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHÉS), Bures sur Yvette and a Zassenhaus Assistant Professor at Ohio State University. I received my PhD in 2009 from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. My undergraduate degree was in Statistics and I received my BStat (Hons.) in 2005 from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. My hometown is the city of Ranchi, in Jharkhand.
My research is in the fields of Algebraic Geometry and Noncommutative Geometry. In the domain of Noncommutative Geometry, my main interest is in Hochschild and cyclic homology. In Algebraic Geometry, my main interest is in developing results for schemes over symmetric monoidal categories. Additionally, I also study bivariant Chow groups. Finally, I also like to dabble in K-theory and sometimes in arithmetic geometry.
I love to travel. I am often away to see great historical sites around Bengaluru. You can find the pics here.
