I am a second year PhD student at Stanford University, advised by Prof. John Duchi. My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of optimization and statistics. I am currently working on problems in federated learning and dabbling my hands in differential privacy.
Before joining Stanford, I did my bachelor’s and master’s at IIT Bombay. During my time there, I worked on Game Theory, Restless Bandit Algorithms and MCMC on Graphs with Prof. Vivek Borkar, Prof. Ankur Kulkarni and Prof. Jayakrishnan Nair.
Outside work I enjoy biking, soccer, cooking and anything outdoors.
Research Interests: Stochastic Optimization, Differential Privacy, Federated Learning and Statistical Learning
