I am an Assistant Professor in the ESD pillar of SUTD. My research interests lie broadly in Applied Probability and Stochastic Processes, with particular emphasis on models and methods that arise in stochastic operations research. Specific topics I work include distributionally robust optimization, estimation of tail risks / rare event probabilities, exact sampling of stochastic processes, etc. 

Before joining SUTD, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, Columbia University

My PhD dissertation on "Rare events in heavy-tailed stochastic systems: Algorithms and Analysis" was awarded with the TIFR-SASKEN Best Thesis Award for the year 2015.

I was a recipient of IBM International PhD Fellowship for the year 2013-14. I have held visiting research positions in
ICERM, Brown University (Sep - Nov, 2012),
Department of IEOR, Columbia University (Sep - Dec, 2012).
Management Science & Engineering, Stanford University (Jul - Nov, 2017).

Prior to my stint as a grad student in TIFR, I worked for an year in Cisco Systems R & D, Bangalore.
