I am part of the Logic group at UIUC, and my advisor is
Lou van den Dries.

My research interests lie primarily in model theory and its applications.

Before coming over to Illinois in 2015, I received my undergraduate education at the
Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur .

I am focusing on exploring certain consequences of the
Pila-Wilkie theorem
and its generalizations.

More precisely, my work is centered around investigating applications of the Pila-Zannier strategy.
In the past decade or so, this strategy has been employed to attack several problems in diophantine geometry,
not least the André-Oort Conjecture.

The additive groups of ℤ and ℚ with predicates for being square-free,
