About me:

I'm an assistant professor of Mathematics at the Chennai Mathematical Institute in India.


I obtained my Phd at Cornell University in 2020, after which I was a postdoc at the University of British Columbia (2020-2022) and a Simons postdoctoral fellow at the Centre de recherches Mathematiques, Montreal (2022-2023). 

Research interests:

I use Galois theoretic methods to study questions in number theory and arithmetic geometry. My research is primarily in

  • Iwasawa theory,

  • Galois representations,

  • Arithmetic statistics.
