I am currently a Postdoc in the Center for Computational Intractability and Princeton University. I am also an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at the University of Warwick. I am also affiliated with DIMAP. I will be on leave from Warwick from November 2013 to October 2014.

I have recently completed my Ph.D. in the Algorithms and Theory Group at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My advisor was Chandra Chekuri. Before coming to UIUC, I was an undergraduate at Princeton University. My CV is here.

Research Interests

I have broad interests in theoretical computer science and optimization. I am currently working on approximation algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems. The main areas of approximation that I have worked in are routing, network design, and submodular optimization. I have also worked on geometric approximation problems, general packing and covering, and large data analysis using MapReduce.
