I’m a mathematician in Glasgow, where my PhD is supervised by Michael Wemyss. I am interested in homological phenomena in algebraic geometry and representation theory.

I grew up in Nashik and studied mathematics at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. As an undergraduate I worked with Dhruv Ranganathan, Thomas Forster, and Gregory Wilsenach on various projects as a part of what is now the CSRIM program. In addition to algebra and geometry, I have enjoyed studying functional analysis and various aspects of logic and model theory.

In Cambridge I was involved with the The Archimedeans for all four years, serving as the President for the latter two. We organised various events and talks by mathematicians, one of which I was a speaker for. I have also served as the Vice President of CamTeX and as a graphics designer for various student societies. I am largely involved with outreach and had the opportunity to interview various mathematicians in 2020 and 2021 for the International Mathematics Olympiad, the recordings of which can be watched here.

I sometimes write software, and briefly worked with Nilay Kulkarni as a back-end engineer at Stoa in Bangalore. Other hobbies include art and poetry.

Why ‘Catbus’, you ask? I could be fancy and say the cat stands for ‘category’, but the truth is I just like cats (and My Neighbour Totoro) and find it incredibly amusing that the catbus is a cat and a bus at the same time.
