I am interested in Theoretical Computer Science and belong to the Algorithms and Theory group at UB.
Of late I am also interested in questions at the intersection of computing and society and belong to the Computing for Social Good group at UB.
Specific topics of interest include structured linear algebra (with applications in machine learning), database algorithms, theory of error-correcting codes, algorithms and society.
