I am a PhD student working with Dr. Nick Jones (Systems and Signals Group) in the Department of Mathematics, Dr. Thomas Ouldridge (Department of Bioengineering) at Imperial College London and Dr. Manoj Gopalkrishnan (Department of Electrical Engineering) at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
My research primarily revolves around three threads:
(i) Investigating fundamental energy-cost/time trade-offs for performing information processing tasks like erasing or switching a bit.
(ii) Exploring cost/signal strength/retroactivity trade-offs in biological signal transduction pathways. [This is part of ongoing work].
(iii) Exploring the geometry of chemical reaction networks in relation to the Global Attractor Conjecture, an open problem for more than four decades.
I graduated with a B.Tech in Computer Science and M.S in Computational Natural Science from International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad. My master’s thesis was based on using optimal control theory to control molecular motion. It was supervised by Prof. Harjinder Singh and Dr. Indranil Chakrabarty.
