About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where I am hosted by Prof. Gregory W. Wornell.

Previously, I have held postdoctoral appointments in the Computer Science Department at the Carnegie Mellon University and the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I worked with Prof. Venkatesan Guruswami and Prof. Arya Mazumdar, respectively. I received a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2015, where I was advised by Prof. Sriram Vishwanath. At UT Austin, I also had the pleasure of working with Prof. Alex Dimakis. Before attending UT Austin, I received a B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur in 2010.
