I'm Kishen

About me

I'm a second year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Maryland, College Park, where I am fortunate to be advised by Laxman Dhulipala and Aravind Srinivasan. Prior to joining UMD, I completed my bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar.

My research interests broadly lie in efficient parallel graph algorithms, approximation & parameterized algorithms for problems in combinatorial optimization with a focus on algorithmic fairness and differential privacy.
