I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Purdue University working with wonderful Prof Suresh Jagannathan. Before this, I worked for a year on Program Analysis for JS with Prof Frank Tip. I did my PhD dissertation on verifying behavioral properties of complex programs at Indian Institute of Science, India under Prof. Y. N. Srikant.

I am interested in developing formal methods for Software Reliability and Synthesis. In this context, I am especially interested in developing automated program synthesis techniques and tools (Cobalt); designing richer types (Coverage Types) and domain specific programming languages (Morpheus) and building program analysis and verification tools for JavaScript(Stubbifier).

**I am currently in the job market, preferably in India.**

My statements are as follows: (CV, Research statement, Teaching statement). Please drop me an email if you find my work interesting.
