I am a sixth year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago, studying number theory and arithmetic geometry. I am interested in Galois representations coming from Abelian varieties. Lately I have been working on moduli problems related to torsion representation of low dimensional abelian varieties. My advisor is Frank Calegari.

I completed my Bachelors and Masters from IISER Pune.

Here is my CV.
