Welcome to my webpage! I'm a graduate student in the Computer Science department at MIT. I've been in the Theory of Computation group at CSAIL since Fall 2014. I am fortunate to be advised by Costis Daskalakis . My interests lie in statistical learning theory, property testing, and algorithmic game theory. Before MIT, I spent 4 years at IIT Bombay from where I graduated with a B. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering.
In Summer 2018, I was an intern at Microsoft Research New England. I worked on Econometrics and Optimization problems with Vasilis Syrgkanis and Greg Lewis.
To contact me, you can email: nishanthd@csail.mit.edu. My office is MIT CSAIL 32-G628.
