photo I am a postdoctoral student at the Blavatnik School of Computer Science in Tel Aviv University, where I am hosted by Amir Shpilka. The first six months of my stay here were partially funded by the Harry Bloomfield Scholarship and I am currently being supported by the Azrieli International Postdoctoral Fellowship. I am also being partially supported by the Israel Science Foundation (grant number 514/20) and the Len Blavatnik and the Blavatnik Family foundation during my entire stay.

Before this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where I was hosted by Pavel Hrubesͮ. I was funded by Grant GX19-27871X of the Czech Science Foundation during my stay.

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.

Here is a link to my resume. It was last updated in September, 2023.

My research interest lies in the field of Theoretical Computer Science in general; and Complexity Theory in particular. What I love doing the most is understanding the power of various models of computation. :)
