Currently I’m a research assistant at Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT), National University of Singapore (NUS). Before this I did a joint bachelors and masters in CS from IIIT Hyderabad, affiliated with CSTAR, IIIT Hyderabad and CQST, IIIT Hyderabad where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Shantanav Chakraborty and Prof Indranil Chakrabarty.

[NEWS] Starting August 2024, I’ll be joining NUS School of Computing as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Divesh Aggarwal!

Research Interests

My research interests span theoretical computer science, but I particularly like algorithms (approximation and quantum algorithms, applied to optimization, natural sciences, and numerical analysis), and complexity theory (hardness, non-approximability and its connections to cryptography and physics). You can find my publications here.

Another side of me loves to program large software systems with heavy low-level optimisations, particularly in C++. I got particularly interested in this after by brief stint at Goldman Sachs working on a highly performant distributed database system (SecDB).

About Me

I love to lift weights, jog and practice Martial Arts. In my free time I like to read and watch Sci-Fi. You can find some of the books and papers I like here. I love to code and read about large software systems. You can find some of the projects I’ve worked on here. I’m probably a chaotic good druid although I occasionally identify as a bard. Feel free to reach out to me about stuff you think I’ll like, or talk about whatever.
