a little About me..

I was born and raised in New Delhi, India. I earned my Bachelor's in Science degree from Delhi University and moved to New Orleans to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics. My research interests lie in number theory, experimental mathematics, p-adic numbers, combinatorics and special functions.


I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Mathematics department at Tulane University under the direction of Dr. Victor Moll. My thesis is on studies on the valuation of sequences and I am expected to graduate in May 2022.

I am teaching MATH1230 (Statistics for Scientist) this spring.

I am also an organizer of Math For All in Nola 2022, and the Number theory Seminar on Modular Forms at Tulane University.


I enjoy going on long walks and exploring the neighborhood. I love baking and working on jigsaw puzzles or solving a sudoku puzzle in my free time. I enjoy going out with friends to catch some live music or trying out new restaurants or cafes.
