I study number theory and its connections to lattices, error-correcting codes, sphere packings, quantum computing. My PhD advisor is Prof. Maryna Viazovska and I am a part of the Chair of Number Theory.

I recently finished my PhD. Before this, I was a masters student at EPFL and before that, a bachelor student at IIT Kanpur.
