Hi! I am Surya, and I am a third year PhD student in the MIT Theory group. I am extremely fortunate to be advised by Vinod Vaikuntanathan and Virginia Vassilevska Williams.
I am broadly interested in combinatorics, graph algorithms, fine-grained complexity and cryptography.
Prior to this, I was an undergraduate at Caltech, where I had the pleasure to work with Christopher Umans and Adam Sheffer.
In my free time, I enjoy art, dancing, and playing music.
