I am a Fulbright-Nehru post-doctoral fellow at the Computer Science Department, Carnegie Mellon University, hosted by Ariel Procaccia. Earlier, I was a lecturer and post-doctoral fellow at the Economics and Planning Unit, Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi Centre, where I worked in the microeconomics group with Arunava Sen, Debasis Mishra, and Souvik Roy. Even earlier, I completed my PhD from the Department of Computer Science and Automation, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, advised by Y. Narahari. My research interest lies in the intersection of Economics and Computation, and are applied in the areas like Internet economics, crowdsourcing, resource allocation, online advertising, auctions, matching, social networks.

I'm joining CSE, IIT Kanpur as an Assistant Professor in July 2017. If you are considering a CS B.Tech./M.Tech./Ph.D. in India, I suggest you consider CSE@IITK, see this page to learn why. If you are already in IITK, you may consider taking CS698W that I'll teach this fall. I also look forward to industrial collaboration, please get in touch if you have a proposal.
