About Me.

 

I am a researcher in the Cryptography and Complexity area at Microsoft Research Lab, India

 

I was a student of Rafail Ostrovsky and Amit Sahai at UCLA and graduated in 2010. During this period, I also spend 3 summers at various Microsoft Research labs in the US and a semester at IPAM.

 

I am spending summer 2015 at the Simons institute in UC Berkeley.

 


 

Research Interests. Cryptography, Theoretical Computer Science, Algorithms and Complexity

 


 

Positions: I am always looking for candidates for Research Fellows, intern and postdoc positions. Research Fellowship (RF) is a 1-2 year pre-PhD research program (our past RF candidates and interns have typically gone on to do PhDs from top universities). Please email me directly if you are interested.
