Greetings! I was born in the industrial city Faridabad in India, where I went to school. For my dual BS-MS, I went to Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Mohali, where I majored in mathematics. My MS thesis was a survey of self-adjoint operators and the abstract can be found here

 

After graduating in 2014, I moved to Michigan State University for my PhD. I am expected to graduate in May 2020.

Outside of mathematics, I spend my time playing video games, table tennis, and squash. I have engaged in various other activities over the years as well. In the space below, I talk about some of them.

In 2016, I wrote and co-directed a play for Sargam-the annual cultural event organized by MSU's Indian Students' Organization. It was called "A journey through India" and was performed at Wharton Center for Performing Arts in front of a crowd of 400+ people.

From 2013 to 2015, I made bad-math-joke-webcomics with a friend. The comic was called Dr. Isomorpheus

I used to do some amateur photography. Here is a little sample.

I was a part of a documentary workshop back in 2011. Back then, IISER Mohali was still under construction. A group of students came together to form YATN or Youth's Attempt to Nurture. The organization focused on education and well-being of children of migrant workers building the institute. The short film my group made was about YATN. The video is available here.
