I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) , I am also associated with Bharti School of Telecommunication Technology and Management. I am a recipient of the DST Inspire Faculty Fellowship Award, 2019. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, hosted by Prof. Daniel P. Palomar. I received the Ph.D. and M.Tech degrees from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, under the guidance of Prof. Ketan Rajawat and Prof. Govind Sharma, respectively.
Research: The overarching theme of my research interest lies at the coherent interaction between optimization, signal processing, machine learning, and graphical models, with applications in networks and data ubiquity. Specific problems of interest include
Graphical models and graph based algorithms for machine learning
Federated learning and optimization over heterogeneous networks
Large scale optimization for Big Data
Stochastic approximation and sampling based algorithms
Network monitoring and design of distributed algorithms
Transceiver optimization, precoder design, beamforming, interference alignment
Note: I am actively looking for students at all levels to work with me, please write to me if your research interests align with the aforementioned areas. Also find a mutually convenient time to chat and explore ideas that you may want to bring to the fore.
