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.
