About Me

I am a post doctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo. I obtained my PhD in 2016 from Queen's University under the supervision of Professor Ram Murty. Prior to this, I was at IISER Pune where I completed an integrated BS-MS program in Mathematics with a minor in Physics in 2012.


Research Interests: Analytic number theory, Sieve methods, Algebraic number theory. I am also interested in interactions of number theory with probability theory.

You can find my CV here.
