Hi! I am a third year PhD student at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, where I am advised by Prof. Julia Chuzhoy. I am interested in Theoretical Computer Science, mainly Approximation Algorithms and Hardness of Approximation.

Before that, I received my BTech in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur under the supervision of Prof. Surender Baswana.

In my free time I cook, while trying to optimize the ratio of taste over effort. I try to keep the recipes Gujarati at heart, but cook with convenient ingredients (see the recipe of my staple dinner). When the weather is warm enough I like to read on my hammock, somewhere close to the lake-shore. Also, I am learning sailing these days!
