I am an assistant professor in the School of Computer Sciences, NISER, Bhubaneswar. Earlier, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata and the University of Bonn in Germany. I completed my PhD in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Delhi with Prof. Ragesh Jaiswal.
Research interests: Algorithm design, more specifically sublinear and randomized algorithms.
