Research Interest

  1. Number Theory
  2. Quantum Computation
  3. Optimization
  4. Combinatorics

I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences division of the School of Arts and Sciences at Ahmedabad University.


My research interests primarily lie in modular forms, automorphic forms and automorphic representations. I am interested in exploring the rich interplay between the classical methods and the automorphic representation theoretic methods, that often provides deep insights in number theory.

I am also interested in optimization, especially using quantum computational algorithms.
