My current focus is on robust decision making under uncertainty which crops up in areas such as computational economics and machine learning. Representative recent problems include Sequential Decision Making, Online Matching Markets, Multi-armed Bandits and Causality.
I am always open to working on projects tied to other application areas which require principled algorithmic approaches. Feel free to contact me!
Previously, I obtained a B.Tech (Hons), with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Operations Research, from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. My brother and I spent our childhood days in the beautiful city of Bangalore, India.
I like reading (through non-fiction books), discussing (with friends) and understanding topics involving Politics, Spirituality, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy and Communicable Diseases (particularly HIV). Recently, I was introduced to the sport of Bouldering and dabble with it from time-to-time.
