Post-Doctoral Fellow
College of Computing
Georgia Institute of Technology

I am a postdoc working with Vijay V. Vazirani. My main research interests lie in the areas of algorithmic game theory, mathematical economics, and in design of efficient algorithms. I am interested in exploring the computability of equilibria, both market and Nash, under various settings, and also understanding the impact of strategic behavior in multi-agent situations. In addition I am exploring avenues for interdiciplinary applications of these tools to genetic evolution, machine learning and dynamical systems. My postdoc is supported by NSF grant CCF-1216019.

I received my Ph.D. in computer science from IIT-Bombay under the supervision of Milind Sohoni and Bharat Adsul, in August 2012. My Ph.D. thesis titled "Nash Equilibrium Computation in Various Games" won the ACM India Doctoral Dissertation Award, 2012.

Here are my CV and research statement.


Serving on programme committes of ITCS 2016, FSTTCS 2015, FOCS 2015, and WWW 2015 (poster).

I am co-organizing Game Theory Workshop, 14 - 17 Dec, 2015; a part of Combinatorial Optimization trimester program to be held at Hausdorff Center of Mathematics, Universitat Bonn, Germany.
