I am an Assistant Professor (open-ended) in the Operational Research group within the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, UK.

My habilitation in mathematics, from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, is currently under the formal final review. For nearly three years I worked at the Discrete Math & Optimization group at Sandia National Laboratories, US.

I received both my Master's and PhD degrees in operations research from The University of Texas at Austin, US. My PhD work was advised by David Morton and Lauren Meyers; I continue to collaborate with both of them extensively till date. During my master's, I also received a Portfolio in Scientific Computation from the department of statistics. I received my Bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India. For the formal titles of these degrees, please see my CV.

Discrete stochastic optimization - formulations, algorithms, and applications - is my key area of interest.
