I am a fourth year Ph.D student in the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working on the theory and applications of Topological data analysis under the guidance of Prof. Yuliy Baryshnikov. I’m also pursuing a M.S degree in the Department of Mathematics at UIUC.

I am an intern at Nokia Bell Labs for Summer and Fall 2022, where I am working on applications of Machine learning and Game theory to communication systems under Iraj Saniee and Carl Nuzman.

I graduated with a Dual degree (B.Tech + M.Tech) in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay where I was advised by Prof. Debasish Chatterjee and Prof. Ravi Banavar in the Department of Systems and Control Engineering. I worked on problems in Nonlinear geometric control and Robust optimization during this period.
