About Me

I am a PhD student working with the Theory and Foundations (FoCS) group at the Warwick University Computer Science Department under the supervision of Sayan Bhattacharya and a member of the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP). My research is in the area of dynamic algorithms and is being funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Doctoral Training Partnership.

I received my master’s degree in discrete mathematics from the University of Warwick, where I studied a combination of various types of computer science and maths. I mostly focused on theoretical computer science, taking courses in areas such as complexity theory, graph theory, randomized and approximation algorithms, quantum computing, and learning theory.

Research Interests

My research interests primarily lie within the field of dynamic algorithms, with a particular focus on dynamic graph and clustering algorithms. I am also very interested in edge coloring in basically any setting--including static, dynamic, online, and distributed. I have some links to edge coloring papers that I find interesting here. I am very open to collaboration, so if anyone is interested in working with me, please get in touch via email.
