I am a pre-doctoral research fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I work with Praneeth Netrapalli and Prateek Jain. I am broadly interested in understanding deep learning phenomena and making machine learning more reliable.

I received my BS in Computer Science and Statistics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), where I was advised by Hari Sundaram, Sewoong Oh, and Sanmi Koyejo. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, cricket, and table tennis.
