I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, working with Joël Ouaknine.

Prior that I was a Postdoctoral researcher at the Facets of Complexity and Institut für Mathematik, TU Berlin with Prof. Dr. Peter Bürgisser

Before this, I was a Postdoctoral researcher at Department of Computer Science, Aalto University with Prof. Parinya Chalermsook.

I obtained my PhD degree in 2019 from Saarland University, where I was advised by Prof. Markus Bläser. During my doctoral studies phase, I was also a member of Max Planck Institute for Informatics. Before that, I completed my Masters studies from Saarland University.

I did my bachelor studies from Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Delhi. A brief CV can be found here. My proudest achievement can be found here.
