I am a research scientist at Google Research, New York. I obtained my PhD in electrical and computer engineering from University of California, San Diego, where I was advised by Alon Orlitsky. Prior to joining UCSD, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

Research interests

My current research is primarily centered on developing algorithms and theoretical formulations for addressing resource and privacy considerations for machine learning systems in practice. Specific topics include federated learning, unlearning, privacy, and language models.

I am a theoretician by training and I have worked on basic statistical problems such as distribution estimation and testing during my PhD. I am always happy to discuss theoretical problems in the union of machine learning, information theory, and statistics.
