Profile Summary 

I have studied at IIT Kanpur and the University of California, Berkeley, and held postdoctoral positions at the Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad and the Bangalore Centre of the Indian Statistical Institute. My research interests are in representation theory and mathematical finance. 

For over 15 years, I have been involved in efforts to make mathematics education at the school and college level more interesting and fulfilling through special topics, projects, and an appreciation of the myriad links of mathematics with other disciplines. This began during my time as a teacher at St. Stephen’s College and was my main focus during the years I spent with the Mathematical Sciences Foundation. I often serve as resident faculty for the Mathematical Training & Talent Search program sponsored by the National Board for Higher Mathematics. 

At Shiv Nadar University, I have relished the opportunity to take part in designing undergraduate and graduate curricula from scratch, as well as in setting up a Department of Mathematics that truly believes in “unity in diversity”. I have been Head of Department since 2013, and Dean Undergraduate Studies since September 2015.
