I did my undergraduate work at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), majoring in mathematics and minoring in computer science and physics. I married Natasha Arora on May 28, 2012. I received my Ph.D. at Brown University in May 2014. My hobbies include yoga, meditation, playing piano, logic puzzles, knitting, painting (I was 99% sure I could never make a decent painting until I went to Paint Nite so I highly encourage everyone to go!), chess, dancing (esp. Rumba and West Coast Swing!), table tennis, racquetball, badminton, and anything Dune-related.
