<h3>Research Interest </h3>
<p>I am currently reading game theory and mechanism design with <a href = "http://esd.sutd.edu.sg/faculty/shrutivandana-sharma/"target="_blank">Prof. Shruti</a> and <a href = "http://esd.sutd.edu.sg/faculty/ying-xu/"target="_blank">Prof. Ying Xu</a>. I was previously reading both computational and theoretical aspects of stochastic systems with <a href = "http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in/~jayendran/"target="_blank">Prof. Jayendran</a> and <a href = "http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in/~nh/"target="_blank">Prof. Hemachandra</a> at <a href="http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in" target = "_blank" >IEOR, IIT Bombay</a>. <a href = "http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in/~nh/"target="_blank">Prof. Hemachandra</a> helped me a lot in reading <a href = "http://people.sutd.edu.sg/~manu_kumar/books.html"target="_blank">many books and papers</a> during my doctoral studies. <a href = "http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in/vkavitha"target="_blank">Prof. Kavitha</a> often helped me in understanding this subject. I like reading <a href = "http://www.optimization-online.org/"target="_blank">optimization</a> as well. I am also interested in the research work of </p>
<li><a href="http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~mjneely/" target="_top">Michael J. Neely</a></li>
<li><a href="http://web.mit.edu/dbertsim/www/index.html" target="_top">Dimitris Bertsimas</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.mit.edu/people/dimitrib/home.html" target="_top">Dimitri P. Bertsekas </a></li>

<li><a href="http://www.mit.edu/~gamarnik/home.html" target="_top">David Gamarnik</a></li>
<p> and I feel above list should expand in coming future. More broadly, I am excited by research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics, and its applications to scientific discovery.</p>
I personally like reading papers which use ideas from probability and optimization together (few such papers can be seen <a href="http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0377221710000032">here</a>, <a href="http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?arnumber=6195741">here</a> and <a href="http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0377221707011551">here</a>).
