About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-Delhi) advised by Dr. Debajyoti Bera. Previously, I was employed as a software engineer at Oracle Financial Services Software Ltd. in Bangalore.

Research Interests

My primary area of research is Quantum Computing, specifically Quantum Optimization Algorithms. Although I am passionate about computer science as a rule of thumb, some of the topics I am actively interested in are as follows:
  • Quantum Shallow-ish Depth Circuits: Complexity theoretic implications and practical uses in the NISQ era (Quantum Neural Networks, Poly-sized QAOA circuits, etc.).
  • Solving QLSP, and improvements to the HHL algorithm.
