I am a PhD student in the OptiML and the Theory group at the Computer Science Department at Princeton University

I am interested in Optimization for Machine Learning with a focus on faster optimization methods for Deep Learning. Recently we have focused on provably fast second order methods for Non-convex (FastCubic) and Convex (LiSSA) optimization. I am also interested in Online Learning and more generally Theoretical Computer Science. I am fortunate to be advised by Elad Hazan

Previously, I graduated with a Masters of Science in Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I was advised at UIUC by Prof. Alexandra Kolla

I did my undergraduate at the Computer Science and Engineering Department at IIT Bombay in 2012. Here I was advised by Prof. Abhiram Ranade.

Here is my CV.
