I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University
My advisor was
Prof. Ashish Goel . My thesis was on algorithms and incentives
for reputation systems.
I have not been associated with Stanford University
However, I continue to maintain this homepage from my graduate
I did my undergraduate studies (1997-2001) at the Department of Computer
Science and Engineering, IIT Kanpur. My undergraduate thesis
was on primality testing under
the supervision of
Prof. Manindra Agrawal. It finds a mention in the seminal work
of Agrawal, Kayal, Saxena (please see below).
My work experience can be found on my
linkedin page. I currently live in Santa Clara, California.
