I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at the University of Utah, where I work with Dr. Suresh Venkatasubramanian. My area of interest is Combinatorial and Computational Geometry.In particular, I work on algorithmic problems relating to nearest neighbor search, involving the Bregman divergences (natural distance measures for many classes of information theoretic problems), and computation of statistics such as centerpoints, Minimum-Enclosing-Balls and epsilon-nets.

I did my B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science at Lahore University of Management Sciences, where I was also a research assistant under Dr. Nabil Mustafa.
