### About Me

I am a PhD student (Aug 2017-ongoing) in the department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kanpur. I am fortunate enough that I am working under the able guidance of Dr. Nitin Saxena and Dr. Rajat Mittal. My research interest lies in the area of theoretical computer science, specifically in Computational aspects of Number theory and Algebra. I am also interested in Computational Complexity Theory and Computational Algebraic Geometry. Actually I have completed my M.Tech thesis (2015-17) in intersection of these two areas under the supervision of Dr. Nitin saxena. Currently I am exploring some challenging open problems in these research areas to continue my research.
