I’m a Ph.D. student at the Cheriton School of Computer Science at UWaterloo, advised by Prof Kimon Fountoulakis and Prof Aukosh Jagannath. I am a part of the OpAL Lab and the A&C group. My research interests are statistical learning theory and generalization in machine learning. Currently I’m trying to understand the role of graph convolutions at deeper layers of a network.

I received my thesis-based M.Math. degree from UWaterloo, advised by Prof. Jeffrey Shallit, where I worked on algorithmic number theory and combinatorics on words. Prior to that I spent a couple of years at Microsoft in the Azure Compute ecosystem working on migration and replication. I graduated with a CS major from IIT Jodhpur. During my undergrad, I actively contested at the ACM-ICPC, Google Codejam, and several CTFs.

Fun fact: My Erdős number is 2.
