photo I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where I am hosted by Pavel Hrubesͮ. I am funded by Grant GX19-27871X of the Czech Science Foundation.

I completed my PhD 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 PhD Fellowship in Algorithms and Theory.

Before that, I did B.Sc. (Hons.) in Mathematics from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata; and then M.Sc. in Mathematics and Computing from IIT Guwahati.

Here is a link to my resume. It was last updated in September, 2022.

My research interest lies in the field of Theoretical Computer Science in general; and Complexity Theory in particular. Most of my work till now has been in the area of Algebraic Complexity Theory.

The current questions I am looking at are mostly lower bound questions in algebraic circuit complexity. I am also trying to explore connections between algebraic complexity theory and other branches of complexity theory.

I was one of the organinsers of STCS Vigyan Vidushi, 2021, a two-week long workshop aimed at women students who are in their third/fourth year of education (after school) in CS / EE / ECE / Mathematics / Statistics.
