Bio

I completed my BSc (Mathematics) in the year 2001 from S. P. College, Pune and M. Sc. (Mathematics) from Department of mathematics, University of Pune in the year 2003. I qualified  UGC SET  exam in 2004 and obtained MPhil (2011) and PhD (2015) degrees from Department of mathematics, S. P. Pune University. The primary areas in which I am doing my research includes Matroid Theory, Graph Theory and Combinatorics. I have 10 research publications to my credit and attended several national and international conferences in India, Australia, Germany as well as the US. I was awarded the IMS Prize for best paper at the 85th Annual Conference of IMS, IIT Kharagpur, Nov 2019. Received the Best Paper Award at the 19th ICMCSE, Berlin, Germany in May 2017 and received the CSIR Foreign Travel Grant for attending the same. Completed a Research Project titled “Analysis Of Graph Algorithms And Time Complexity”,  in 2013 which was sponsored by BCUD, Pune University.  I'm currently working as an Associate Professor and Head the School of Mathematics and Statistics at MIT World Peace University, Pune,India
