About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Electrical Engineering department at Stanford. I work in the Wireless Systems Laboratory advised by Andrea Goldsmith. I had previously obtained the B. Tech in EE from Indian Institute of Technology-Madras in 2013 and MS from Stanford in 2015.

My doctoral dissertation has focussed on statistical learning, optimization, prediction, or control with networked systems in the presence of information bottlenecks or constraints on data gathered, communication capabilities, computational resources, storage, or processing times.

I am actively interested in research and development positions at innovative, collaborative, and socially responsible companies in the field of deep learning, AI, statistical analysis, or distributed algorithm development.
