I’m an independent researcher living in Los Angeles, California. I spend most of my time doing research, visiting the beach, and traveling to new places.

Education

I graduated with a B.E. (Honors) in Computer Science from BITS-Pilani, Goa Campus. As a part of my undergraduate course, I completed a semester-long thesis in blockchain research at the University of Southern California.

Work

My expertise lies in blockchain research, and my current focus is consensus, sharding, and proof-of-stake. I also have experience in crypto-economic constructions such as token-curated registries and atomic swap protocols.

I’m currently contracting with the Ethereum Foundation for Eth2.0 research.

Life

I grew up in Pune, India, where I completed my schooling till the 12th grade. I then moved to Goa to attend college. Goa is a beach town, and the favorite pastime of students was spending evenings at one of the many beautiful beaches. With so many fond memories of college life being at beaches, I’ve naturally developed a strong affinity for sandy shores.

I like to explore new places – new cultures & cuisines are something I like to experience.
