Curriculum Vitae (last update: February 14, 2023)
Articles on the arXiv


I am a sixth year Ph.D. student at Rice University, advised by Dr. Chelsea Walton. Starting Fall 2023, I will be joining University of Alberta as a Max-Wyman Assistant Professor.

My current research interests are Hopf algebras, Frobenius algebras, finite tensor categories and Topological Quantum Field Theories.

I spent the first three years of my graduate life at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Earlier, in May 2017, I graduated from the IIT, Kanpur with Bachelors in Mathematics and Scientific Computing. Apart from mathematics I really enjoy watching and playing football. Here are some pictures with my football friends form IIT Kanpur.
