Welcome to my homepage! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, IIT Bombay.

I was visiting the IHES, October 20-December 2, 2017.
Earlier this year I spent four months at the Erwin Schroedinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics, Vienna as a Junior Research Fellow and three months at the Mathematics Institute at Oberwolfach (MFO) as a Leibniz Fellow .
Until recently, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Mathematics Department at University of California Berkeley. My position in Berkeley was partially funded by Feoder-Lynen Fellowship of the Humboldt Foundation. My mentor was Prof. Bernd Sturmfels. Previously, I was a visiting assistant professor at the School of Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology where my mentor was Prof. Matt Baker.
