Sanath Kumar Krishnamurthy

Hello, I am Sanath, a first-year PhD student in Operations Research at Stanford. I am interested in problems at the intersection of economics and computer science. Recently, I have been exploring more of bandits, reinforcement learning, and causality.

Before joining Stanford, I got my BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science (2013-2016) and MSc Computer Science (2016-2018) from Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI).

Short survey/overview: on fixed-point theorems (link), and on bandit algorithms (link).
