I am a Reader at the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (ICTS-TIFR). Before coming to ICTS, I was a Szegö Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley, advised by Allan Sly.
I am broadly interested in Probability Theory and its applications. I often work on probability questions coming from Statistical Physics or Theoretical Computer Science. More specifically, I have recently been working on first and last passage percolation, interacting particle systems, models of self-organized criticality among other topics.
In Fall 2018, I am teaching a, ICTS/IISc graduate course on Techniques in Discrete Probability: MA 394.
