My name is Amatya. I'm a first year PhD in Theoretical Computer Science at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), fortunate to be co-advised by Nikhil Bansal and Euiwoong Lee. I completed my Dual Degree (BTech+MTech) from Computer Science and Engineering Department, IIT Kharagpur. I am a coffee aficionado straight from the himalayas (Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh). I am "(current-year) modulo 100" years old i.e. 22 years old in 2022.

About Me...

    I am a coffee aficionado. Here are the coffee brands that I adore and recommend everyone (in decreasing order of liking): KCRoasters, Blue Tokai, The Flying Squirrel, Seven Beans co., and the all-time regulars Nescafe.
                            Many people misconstrue my name as "Amartya" (after Nobel Memorial Prize-winning Indian economist Amartya Sen). But my parents put a little too much effort ransacking libraries to search for a name and eventually came up with Amatya from the biography of king Harshvardhan's which means an "administrator" or "minister." I speak English, Hindi, terrible French and even-more-terrible Pahadi. I like music and I believe that the likeability of music depends on the current state of mind and very less on the taste of an individual. Check out some of my playlists.. Besides this, I live in Himachal, the "Snow-Laden Province" of India. At times, I capture the beauty of himalayas and nature in general, check out here.
