About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the College of Information and Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I am hosted by Prof. Gregory W. Wornell and Prof. Arya Mazumdar, respectively.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Computer Science Department at the Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Prof. Venkatesan Guruswami. 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 to work 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.

I am on the job market this year.
