I am a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Vladimir Kolmogorov at IST, Austria. I finished my PhD under the supervision of Francis Bach at INRIA, SIERRA in September, 2016. I received MVA Masters from ENS-Cachan in 2013 and Bachelors degree (Computer Science and Engineering) from IIIT, Hyderabad in 2003.

My research revolves around exploring the links between different topics in the following areas :
