Academic Background

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

My primary area of research is several complex variables. Within this field, I work on problems that have connections to convex geometry (asymptotics of polytope approximations), harmonic analysis (integral representation formulas and singular kernels) and approximation theory (rational and polynomial approximations). I am a member of the Analysis and Probability Research Group at IISc.
