I am a research associate at Google Research India, where I work with Praneeth Netrapalli and Prateek Jain. I am interested in understanding and mitigating failure modes that limit the robustness and reliability of machine learning systems.

Before joining Google, I was a research fellow in the Machine Learning and Optimization group at Microsoft Research India. I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Statistics from UIUC, where I worked with Hari Sundaram, Sewoong Oh, and Sanmi Koyejo. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, cricket, and table tennis.
