I am 2nd year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I work in the broad area of Data Management, and I’m fortunate to be advised by Jignesh Patel.
In a past life, I worked at Goldman Sachs for three years. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai (India), where I enjoyed life at Godavari Hostel.
I am passionate about a lot of things in Math, Science, Engineering, Programming, Philosophy, Economics, Literature, Psychology, Music and the list goes on. I also intend to pursue research in one or more of the above topics for the rest of my life. This explains the name of the blog and is a good indicator of what kind of topics are going to be dealt with in future posts.
I’m an incredibly lazy guy, between bursts of enthusiastic workaholism. This is something that followers of my blog, few as they may be, will find hard not to notice.
