I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Technion. I received my PhD from University of Utah under the supervision of Mladen Bestvina. Before that, I completed my undergraduate studies from IIT Bombay. My research is in geometric group theory and has so far been related to outer automorphisms of free groups and mapping class groups.

  • As an undergraduate, I worked with Professor Laurent Bartholdi, at Georg-August University of Gottingen for a summer. Under his guidance I developed some animations explaining what is a torus using POV-ray. Torus movies
  • In collaboration with Klaus-Peter Brenner and Laurent Bartholdi, I developed computed animated visualization of rotational symmetric structure of the Shona music of Zimbawe. Webpage
