photo I will be joining NISER Bhubaneswar, as a visiting faculty member, in June 2024.

Before this I spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher, first at the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (where I was hosted by Pavel Hrubesͮ) and then at the Blavatnik School of Computer Science in Tel Aviv University (where I was hosted by Amir Shpilka). My second year of postdoctoral research was supported by the Azrieli International Postdoctoral Fellowship.

I completed my M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the School of Technology and Computer Science at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai under the guidance of Ramprasad Saptharishi. I was supported by a Google Fellowship in my final year of Ph.D..

In the distant past, I did B.Sc. (Hons. in Mathematics with Computer Science & Physics) from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata; and then M.Sc. in Mathematics and Computing from IIT Guwahati. My schooling was from La Martiniere for Girls, Kolkata.

I am currently looking for faculty positions in India. Here is a link to my resume. It was last updated in April, 2024.

My research interest lies in the field of Theoretical Computer Science. What I love doing the most is understanding the power of various models of computation. Here is a link to my research statement.

STCS Vigyan Vidushi 2024

The STCS Vigyan Vidushi 2024 programme is a summer school to introduce women with undergraduate and postgraduate background to advanced topics in theoretical computer and systems sciences. The two-week programme will be held during the period 15th July - 26th July 2024 at the TIFR Mumbai campus, and will consist of short technical courses taught by faculty from STCS, TIFR. Lectures will be supplemented by problem-solving sessions, to enhance students' understanding.

The programme aims to provide participants exposure to contemporary topics in theoretical computer and systems sciences, and also to promote research in computer science as a career among women. To promote interactions and introduce participants to life as a researcher, there will also be mentoring sessions conducted by students and faculty from TIFR and outside. A distinguished lecture series consisting of eminent scientists will be part of the programme, to give insights into current research trends.

Applications deadline has been extended to 12 May 2024.

More about the eligibility and application are provided in the application page.

I was really fortunate to have been hosted at different Indian institutes (while being affiliated to Tel Aviv University) between October 2023 and April 2024. I am eternally grateful to the following people for hosting Anamay and me during this period.
