I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the Oregon Institute of Technology. Before coming here, I was a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toledo, OH from 2010 to 2013.

I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Kentucky in August 2010, under the supervision of Prof. David Leep. My research interests are in Number Theory and Quadratic Forms. My Ph.D. thesis was titled "Diagonal Forms and Rationality of the Poincaré Series", which, loosely speaking, is the study of the number of solutions of a polynomial modulo powers of prime and the power series that it generates.

I did my undergraduate education -- B.S. (Hons.) in Mathematics from the Chennai Mathematical Institute, India in 2004.

Apart from mathematics, I'm also interested in scientific and recreational programming using Python and GameMaker Language.
