I am an assistant professor at the Chennai Mathematical Institute. I completed my PhD in 2011 in mathematics from University of Western Ontario, Canada under the supervision of Graham Denham and Ján Mináč. Then I spent a year at Northeastern in Boston followed by three years as a post-doc here at CMI. My mathematical interests broadly include Algebraic topology and Combinatorics. In particular I am interested in the theory of arrangements (hyperplanes, tori, submanifolds etc.), topological robotics and applications of algebraic topology.
I am one of the placement coordinators at CMI. If you are looking for hiring mathematicians to work in finance, machine learning, formal verification etc. feel free to write to me. Visit our placement page here.
I am also local coordinator for the Madhava Mathematics Competition. If you are from around Chennai and are interested in participating in this competition then get in touch.
I and Ronno Das ran a weekly seminar on configuration spaces with a focus on understanding their cohomology as representations of the symmetric group. The seminar page is here.
I am coorganizing Computational Geometry Dat at CMI. For more information click here.

This semester I am teaching topics in combinatorics .
