PROFESSIONAL PATH

About me

Namaste!

I am doctoral student in the Rigorous Software Engineering group at Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. I am advised by Rupak Majumdar and Anne-Kathrin Schmuck.

I am currently interested in games on finite graphs, synthesis of reactive systems and concurrency theory.

Prior to this, I graduated with a Masters in Computer Science, and Bachelors in Mathematics and Computer Science from Chennai Mathematical Institute in India.

I love reading poetry, and playing Minecraft.

Internships

MPI-SWS, Kaiserslautern, Germany

with Georg Zetzsche (Remote)

Jul 2020 - Jun 2021

The internship was in fulfillment of Master's thesis requirement. We worked on the downward closures of Languages with respect to refinements of subword order.

Chennai Mathematical Institute, Chennai, India

with Prajakta Nimbhorkar

Mar 2021 - Aug 2021

The aim of the project was to study some advanced graph problems and known algorithms to solve them, and to see how good they are practically. We looked at the current status of these problems and explored further research directions.

Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en Informatique, Bordeaux, France

with Jérôme Leroux and Nathanaël Fijalkow

May 2019 - Jul 2019

In this internship, we worked on solving the games on graphs with combination of winning objectives using separating automata and universal graphs, which have been used in past to solve parity games and mean payoff games. Click here to read the blog post on our work.

Institut de Recherche en Informatique Fondamentale, Paris, France

with Thomas Colcombet and Sylvain Schmitz

May 2018 - Jul 2018

The main aim of the internship was to read the paper, Polynomial vector addition systems with states, and extending the results to other models like Branching-VASS, Reset-VASS, Affine-VASS.
