I am an assistant professor in management studies at IIT Roorkee. My research interests are broadly in decision making under uncertainty. In the past, I have worked on several areas such as machine learning, restless bandits, game theory and queuing systems.
On these pages you will be able to find a lot about my technical interests. I hope you enjoy them and find them helpful to what interests you. I believe that a curious mind along with good knowledge of techniques can systematically approach several challenging problems.
If you are interested in the areas that I work on/would like to provide suggestions/have discussions on any topic mentioned in this site, please drop me a mail.
