I am a CNRS senior researcher (DR2) located at IRIF, University Paris Diderot. My interests focuses on fundamental aspects of computation under uncertainty. This finds relevance in a variety of domains, including distributed computing, online algorithms, decision theory, and search algorithms. In previous years I studied classical models of distributed computing, aiming to improve our understanding regarding the connections between the global and local scales of information. Recently, I have become particularly intrigued with applying techniques from algorithm theory in order to uncover computational aspects that are inherent to collective animal behavior. For this purpose, I collaborate with biologists aiming to combine algorithmic investigations with tailored biological experiments. So far I have been focusing on foraging and information dissemination strategies employed by ants and bats.
My extracurricular interests include North Indian Classical music. I am a tabla exponent of the Farrukhabad gharana and a disciple of Pandit Nayan Ghosh.
