I am a master's student at New York University majoring in Scientific Computing. I received my Bachelors (with Honors) from IIIT Delhi, India majoring in Computer Science with Applied Mathematics.
Currently, I am working at the Geometric Computing Lab advised by Dr. Daniele Panozzo. I am working to optimise the Polyfem library.
Previously, I was a research intern at The Mathematical Geometry Processing Lab at Freie Universität Berlin mentored by Dr. Sunil Kumar Yadav and advised by Dr. Konrad Polthier. I worked on designing a robust and adaptive method to filter point clouds.
In the summer of 2020, I was selected to be a part of the Fields Undergraduate Student Research Program 2020 (FUSRP 2020), where I worked on the problem of mechanism synthesis under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Uchida.
At IIIT Delhi, I created DECAGT, a package that provides a general, extendable software framework for discretizations of the objects and operators of exterior calculus. The concept and design of the software architecture was provided by Dr. Kaushik Kalyanaraman. I did my undergrad thesis in proposing the selfish mining attack on the multi-stage blockchain under the supervision of Dr. Donghoon Chang. I presented how the selfish mining attack can be leveraged in the multi-stage blockchain (and hence a single-stage blockchain too) and also proposed a method to modify the architecture in order to defend against the attack.
As a side project, I am currently studying and learning about the problem of surface registration using functional maps with Dr. Kaushik Kalyanaraman and Aditya Chetan.
