# Hrishikesh Khandeparkar

Hello! I'm Hrishikesh Khandeparkar, a junior (3rd year student) in the CS Department at Princeton University!

This is a rough website I put together to keep track of stuff I've done and to have a collection of links that are interesting to me!

**Research work done in the past**

I've been very lucky to research, grade, and TA with Prof. Matt Weinberg this semester on

- Lower bounds for the simultaenous deterministic communication complexity of the welfare maximization problem
I've been extremely fortunate to work with Prof. Sanjeev Arora for the past two summers on the following

- Explored various continuous relaxations of logic and their relevance towards being learned by gradient descent methods
- Explored the structure of SAT instances that are efficiently solved by SAT Solvers (minisat)

**Teaching**

- I was a teaching assistant for COS521 - Graduate Algorithm Design in Fall 2017. This was one of my favorite courses at Princeton and TA-ing this class was a great time
- I was a grader for COS445 - Algorithmic Game Theory in Spring 2017. I didn't know a lot of mechanism design before this, but I had a great time grading this class and now work on research in this!
- I was a teaching assistant for COS340 - Reasoning about Computation which is the discrete math for computer science course in Fall'16, Spring'17, Fall'17

**Talks**

- Generic Machine learning paper TBD - COS597A Presentation, Fall 2017
- On Simultaenous Two-Player Combinatorial Auctions - COS598D Presentation , Slides , Handout , Fall 2017
- Subgraph counting for the planted clique problem. Slides - COS521 Presentation, Fall 2016
- Dimensionality Reduction and the Johnsson Lindenstrauss Lemma , PACT 2017
- The Multiplicative Weights Meta-Algorithm, PACT 2017
- Fibonacci Heaps, PACT 2016

**Projects**

- Subgraph counting for the planted clique problem. Slides
- Reproducibility Challenge for ICLR TBD
- Owl - a native android app that sends location based push notifications to users to notify them of real time crowdsourced events.

**Scribe notes**

**Course work and some academic stuff**
