I am a PhD student at Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, and a member of the Game Theory Lab. I am being advised by Prof Y Narahari. My broad research interests are Game Theory, Mechanism Design and Approximation Algorithms. I have worked on problems in permissioned blockchains, pricing systems, crowdsourcing, fair division and sponsored search.
I completed my M Tech (Research) from CSA, IISc, under Prof Y Narahari, in July 2018, with a thesis titled "Design of Trusted Market Platforms using Permissioned Blockchains and Game Theory".
I worked as a summer intern at IBM Research, Bangalore during May-July 2017.
I was a recipient of the Summer Research Fellowship at CSE, IIT Madras in 2015.
