About Me

I am a Research Scientist at Google Research, New York.

Previously, I held postdoctoral appointments at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, and University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I worked with Prof. Gregory W. Wornell, 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.
