I received my undergraduate and masters degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering with specialization in communications and signal processing in 2015 from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, where I worked under Prof. Sibi Raj Pillai for my masters project. I received my PhD from Imperial College London in 2020, with the thesis title : "Coding-Theoretic Approaches to Distributed Caching, Storage, and Computing". I worked with Prof. Deniz Gunduz and Dr. Cong Ling during my PhD. I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Information Processing Lab in Imperial College London. 

I have diverse research interests in

  • Information theory
  • Communications theory
  • Coded distributed computation
  • Private distributed computation
  • Distributed storage
  • Differential privacy
  • Homomorphic encryption
  • Analog over-the-air computation and communication
  • Deep image compression

I received the Best Student Paper Award in IEEE WCNC 2018 for the paper "Coded Caching in a Multi-server System with Random Topology". I also worked in the summer of 2018 with Prof. Elza Erkip as a visiting researcher in the NYU Tandon school of engineering. I was a recipient of the H2020 Marie-Sklodowska fellowship for the Scavenge ITN project.
