I am pursuing my Ph.D. in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. My advisor is Prof. Vikram Krishnmurthy.
I am a M.Tech graduate from the department of Systems and Control Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. My advisor was Prof. Ankur A. Kulkarni. I worked on applying weak duality in conjunction with convex relaxation to derive lower bounds for joint source-channel coding problems with feedback.
Earlier, I completed my B.Tech (with Honors) in Electrical Engineering along with a minor in Industrial Design from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. My B.Tech project on design of flyback converter was supervised by Prof. Mukul C. Chandorkar, and the studio project requirement at Industrial Design Centre was guided by Prof. Sumant M. Rao. I am also a recipient of the Undergraduate Research Award for my contribution to the field of Computational Electromagnetics.
I have collaborated with Prof. John Boland as a summer intern at CRANN Institute, Trinity College, Dublin, for the period encompassing May 2015 to July 2015 under the Erasmus program. Moreover, I was a Research Scientist at Systemantics India Pvt. Ltd. under the supervision of Dr. Jagannath Raju for the period beginning from November 2014 to December 2014.

Experience
During October 2016 to March 2017, I worked as a Research and Development Engineer at Works Application, Singapore, wherein I was involved in developing intelligent ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions for supply chain management.
After six months of corporate life, I decided to pursue my project aimed at innovating an easy to access framework for bicycle pooling inside universities campus and tech parks. While my ten months as a co-founder of Elegane Bikes, the project received recognitions from Andhra Pradesh government, FICCI, and was shortlisted for 4 months startup accelerator program organized by XLR8AP and IC2 institute, University of Texas, Austin. We were also endorsed by In2Korea and were invited to commercialize our technology in Seoul, South Korea.
