Assistant Professor

Indian Institute of Technology Delhi


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the Indian Insitute of Technology, Delhi. Prior to joining IIT Delhi, I spent close to six years at the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, where I worked as a Senior Researcher with Prof. Volker Markl in the Database Systems and Information Management (DIMA) Group and at the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data(BIFOLD).

My current research focuses on integrating constraints that arise from regulatory bodies concerning data sovereignty and data movement, as well as disparate compute infrastructures at multiple sites into query processing frameworks.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Mannheim, Germany, where I worked with Prof. Rainer Gemulla in the Data and Web Science Group. Previously, I was a researcher in the Databases and Information Systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken, Germany.
