I am a graduate student in Physics/Applied Math at Princeton University. I completed my undergraduate education in Engineering Physics, with Honors in Physics, at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
, in 2011.
I currently work on developing algorithms for 3D structure reconstruction of macromolecules using cryo-electron microscopy. My problem broadly employs statistical estimation theory, convex optimization and
semidefinite programming, signal processing and numerical linear algebra. The motivation for this problem is to answer biological questions related to small protein
structures that have so far remained unresolved.
