I am a doctoral student in the Theory of Combinatorial Algorithms group at ETH Zürich, and my supervisors are Dr. Michael Hoffmann and Prof. Emo Welzl. I graduated with a Masters in Computer Science from IIIT-Bangalore in July 2018. My Master thesis titled "On the Chromatic Art Gallery Problem" was supervised by Prof. Pradeesha Ashok. I also had the oppurtunity to work with Prof. Saket Saurabh during April-May 2018 at IMSc, Chennai.
My interests lie in Computational Geometry and Graph Theory, mainly topological graph theory and graph drawings. Prior to starting my PhD, I worked at Amazon India as a Software Development Engineer from August 2018 to August 2019. I also contributed to the graph module of SageMath through Google Summer of Code 2018 (a report of the project can be found here).
