  • PhD Student, Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago
I am a first year PhD student at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC) advised by Prof. Nati Srebro. My research is in machine learning and optimization. Recently, I have been looking at guarantees for federated learning algorithms and deep learning.
Before joining TTIC, I obtained my BTech in Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. There I was fortunate to work with Prof. Purushottam Kar on Bandit Learning algorithms. I also spent a year of my undergraduate on academic exchange at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). There I was fortunate to work at the Machine Learning and Optimization Laboratory (MLO) with Prof. Martin Jaggi and Prof. Aymeric Dieuleveut.
Interests. Optimization, Machine Learning, Deep Learning.
