Welcome! I am a Ross Assistant Professor in the department of mathematics at the Ohio State University. I received my PhD degree in mathematics recently from the George Washington University. I worked under the supervision of J. H. Przytycki. To learn more about my mathematics genealogy, please click here. My research interests include low dimensional topology, algebraic structures related to knot theory, graph theory, and combinatorics. Being a knot theory student, I like the fact that I share my birthday with J. W. Alexander. Read about his invariant here.
I came to Washington DC in the year 2014, before which I was affiliated to the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Mohali. Before that, I was doing my undergraduate studies at Saint Xavier’s College under the University of Calcutta and for high school, I went to Don Bosco Park Circus.
In my free time, I like solving recreational math puzzles, playing chess, listening to music, playing my violin, and doing photography. In addition to these things, given below is a list of words/phrases that are connected to me in some way or the other. I am always willing to have a conversation on any topic related to these words/phrases. Some of them might be in other languages (use Google Translate!)…
- Homo sapiens
- the triple dots at the end of random sentences…
- Indian classical music
- Civilization games
- Sherlock Holmes
- Albus Dumbledore
