I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad. Previously, I was a post doctoral researcher at the Theoretical Computer Science group of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences. I completed my PhD at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I work in the areas of parameterized and approximation algorithms for graph theoretic problems.


My primary research interest is in the area of design and analysis of efficient algorithms for computationally hard problems. Specifically, my focus is in designing fixed-parameter tractable and approximation algorithms for various hard combinatorial optimization problems on graphs.
