I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University [since September 2017] and am grateful to be supported by a Stanford Graduate Fellowship [2017-2020].
I have also had the singular pleasure of working with Mary Wootters.
Before this, I received a B. Tech in EE from IIT-Bombay [also in 2017].
I was extremely lucky to spend summer 2016 at MIT in Anantha Chandrakasan's lab during which I mostly studied the feasibility of designing efficient hardware for bilinear pairings over elliptic curves.
I am broadly interested in the fields of high-dimensional statistics and information theory, and mostly just enjoy thinking about applied math-y puzzles in the context of algorithmic and information-theoretic problems.
Here are some other things I like doing in my spare time.
- Implementation and analysis of stabilizer codes in pyQuil - Shubham Chandak, Jay Mardia, Meltem Tolunay
Stabilizer codes form a large family of quantum error correcting codes that includes well-known codes such as Shor code, Steane code, CSS codes and toric codes. In this work, we build a framework for encoding and decoding of general stabilizer codes on pyQuil and test specific single qubit codes with standard quantum noise models.
