Research Projects

Parameterized Algorithms for Social Choice Problems
With Dr. Neeldhara Misra, CSA, IISc.
We examined the problem of approval voting through the lens of parameterized complexity and developed algorithmic and hardness results. Part of this work was published in AAMAS 2015.

Functional Dynamics of Human Brain Networks
With Dr. Sridharan Devarajan, CNS, IISc
We studied the structure and dynamics of functional brain networks using theoretical analysis and functional neuroimaging data. Part of this work was published in NeurIPS 2017.

Dynamics of Fish Schools
With Dr. Danny M Raj, ChemEngg, IISc
We studied turning behaviour of schools of fish using predictive models, and used them to gain insights into the collective dynamics of the school.

Observing and Inferring a Collective
With Dr. Danny M Raj, ChemEngg, IISc
We address the following question: can we infer the properties of individuals of a collective system, by observing the dynamics of the crowd as a whole?
