Since March, 2008, I am working at Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, an independent research organization, as "Postdoctoral Scholar" in the lab of Prof. Jochen Triesch .

Prior to this, I worked at California Institute of Technology as "Postdoctoral Scholar in Biology" in the Division of Biology with Dr. Christoph Koch and Dr. Ila Fiete as my sponsors.

Before joining Caltech, I did my doctoral studies at Institute for Theoretical Computer Science, at Technische Universitaet Graz, in Graz, Austria. My thesis was supervised by Dr. Wolfgang Maass.

I did my M.S. in Computer Science (2002) at Center for Advanced Computer Studies, at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA, where I was supervised by Dr. Anthony S. Maida. I did my B.E. in Electronics Engineering (1999) at Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, (formerly, Motilal Nehru Regional Engineering College), Allahabad, India.
