Research

My research interests are broadly in algebra, number theory and algebraic geometry.

Recently I have been thinking about the local-global principles in Berkovich Theory and trying to obtain a period-index bound on complete non-Archimedean valued fields.

During the dual degree program at the University of Hyderabad, I did my MS Thesis on "Elements of Algebraic Number Theory".


Publications & Preprints

  • Strong u-invariant and Period-Index bound for complete ultrametric fields. (arXiv version)

  • More publications upcoming. This tautological bullet point serves to ensure my website's CSS continues to function smoothly (unlike my garden).
