I am currently a Researcher at Search Labs, Microsoft Research Silicon Valley in Mountain View, CA. I graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2006. My Ph.D. thesis is titled "Models and Algorithms for Data Privacy". At Stanford, my research advisor was Prof. Rajeev Motwani. I used to organize the group meetings of the Privacy and Databases Group and also the Stanford Algorithms Seminar (formerly known as AFLB). Before joining Stanford, I received my Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology-Madras.
