My research interests are at the interface of Number Theory, Representation Theory, Algebra and Geometry. More specifically, I work on the special values of automorphic L-functions using analytic techniques from the Langlands program and geometric techniques concerning the cohomology of locally symmetric spaces. 

Based at IISER Pune, I have served as the Coordinator for Mathematics from December 2011 to July 2017. I was elected as a Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences in 2016. For the academic year 2017-2018, I am on a sabbatical leave from IISER Pune: Fall of 2017 as a Visiting Professor at Purdue University, and the Spring and Summer of 2018, as a member of the School of Mathematics, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.
