I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science.
Prior to joining the department, I was a research associate in the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princeton University.
I did my PhD in Computers, Communications, and Information Systems at EPFL, and my Masters in System Science and Automation here at the institute.
You can find a short resume here.
My primary research interest is in signal/image processing, with a focus on algorithms and numerical optimization.
More recently, I have been working on graph/manifold-based methods for image restoration, and on distributed algorithms for localizing (positioning) large graphs
arising in molecular conformation and sensor networks.
A list of some of the research topics that I work on can be found here.

News & Updates:
April 10, 2014: I will be offering Digital Image Processing (E9 241) in Fall 2014.
February 21, 2014: (prospective students from IISc) Please mail me or meet me (EE 204C) if you are interested in research projects on patch-based image restoration, fast algorithms for data-adaptive filtering, sensor network localization, and multiview registration. In general, I would be happy to collaborate on new ideas in signal/image processing, particularly algorithms and numerical optimization.
February 12, 2014: (prospective summer interns) If you are interested in doing a summer internship with me, please apply through the internship program run by the Indian Academy of Sciences (http://www.ias.ac.in/). I won't be able to respond to direct internship applications.
February 4, 2014: I will be giving a tutorial on "Semidefinite Relaxation" at the upcoming SPCOM conference.
February 3, 2014: I joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science.
