I am a postdoctoral fellow at HKUST. I am hosted by Prof. Daniel P. Palomar. Prior to that, I received my Ph.D. and M.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, under the guidance of Prof. Ketan Rajawat and Prof. Govind Sharma, respectively. My current research interests include graphical models, non-convex optimization, and non-Gaussian statistics.
