Approximation algorithms; Graph Isomorphism & related problems; Mathematical modeling & analysis.

I am a first year PhD student in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am fortunate to have Prof Manuel Blum and Prof Anupam Gupta as my advisors. Before coming to CMU, I finished my masters under the supervision of Prof S. Keshav at the Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo. I obtained my undergraduate degree in computer science in 2011 from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.

I am co-organizing CMU Theory Lunch. Do contact me if you are interested in giving a talk.
