I am an Integrated PhD student at the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science (IISc). I started my research as a PhD student in 2016 under the guidance of Prof. Siddharth Barman (Dept. of Computer Science and Automation, IISc) and Prof. Mrinal K. Ghosh (Department of Mathematics, IISc).

My main research interests lie in the area of Algorithmic Game theory and in the design and analysis of efficient algorithms. I am interested in exploring the computability of equilibria and fair allocations under various settings, and hence, developing algorithms with provable fairness guarantees. I also work in understanding the combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of fixed-point theory. In particular, I am curious about the various applications of fixed point theorems in computing fair allocations and equilibria.

I completed my Masters in Mathematics from IISc with thesis titled 'Efficient Oblivious Transfer Protocols in Cryptography' under the guidance of Prof. Arpita Patra (CSA, IISc). Prior to joining IISc, I received my Bachelors in Mathematics (Hons.) from St. Stephen's College, Delhi University.
