I am a first year PhD student in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical engineering at Stanford University. My research interests broadly lie in Linear Algebra and optimization. I have a bachelors degree (with Honours) in Chemical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. My undergraduate research was in the area of Computational Microfluidics. Also I did a summer research internship in Process Control at EPFL, Switzerland.

I was born and brought up in Neyveli, an industrial town in south India. I enjoy listening to Indian music and reading novels.
