About me

I am a Research Scientist at Facebook. I am a part of Statistics & Privacy team and work broadly in the areas of Federated Learning and MPC based Private Optimization.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During my Ph.D., I developed privacy preserving algorithms for distributed computation (thesis). I was advised by Prof. Nitin Vaidya and Prof. Subhonmesh Bose.

I received a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics (Optimization and Algorithms Stream) from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2018. I spent Summer 2016 as an intern at Toyota InfoTechnology Center with Lewis Tseng and Kentaro Oguchi working on distributed algorithms for driver-assist systems.
