Prior to joining IITM, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Christian Sohler's group at the Fakultät für Informatik, TU Dortmund. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Eldar Fischer in the Computer Science department at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. I completed my PhD at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai under the supervision of Prof. V. Arvind.
