My current focus is on studying algorithmic applications in Computational Economics and Machine Learning. Representative recent problems include Online Matching, Multi-armed Bandits, 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.
