I am a postdoctoral assosicate at MIT working with Prof. Sasha Rakhlin. I am interested in all theoretical aspects of Machine Learning. Recently, I have been working on high-dimensional stochastic optimization, and reinforcement learning (RL).

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Cornell University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Karthik Sridharan and Prof. Robert D. Kleinberg. Prior to Cornell, I completed my undergraduate education from Indian Institute of Techonology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), India, and after that, spent a year at Google Research as a part of the Brain Residency program (now called AI Residency).
