About Me

I am currently a third year PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Prior to pursuing my PhD, I spent 4 wonderful years and completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley. Among other things, I studied EECS, Statistics, and Economics.

While my research and academic interests have converged considerably since then, I still enjoy talking and reading about various topics in economics and game theory. While I don't read for pleasure as much as I would like to, I have cultivated a strong interest in history and politics over the years.

I was born in Mumbai, India, have roots in Kerala and spent a good chunk of my formative years in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. I enjoy learning languages and speak English, French, Hindi, and Malayalam fluently as well as a little German and Arabic.

I am an avid sports fan and follow soccer and tennis as much as I can. I used to run cross-country and play tennis and cricket competitively. I enjoy racquet sports and play squash regularly.
