Hi, welcome to my webpage.
I am an Assistant Professor at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Bhopal, India in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department since January 2024.
My primary research area is the design and analysis of algorithms and corresponding conditional lower bound results. My main publications are about parameterized algorithms for NP-hard graph problems.
I was an INSPIRE Faculty Fellow at IISER Pune, and a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Max-Planck Institute for Informatics and CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security, both hosted by Prof. Daniel Marx. I have completed my Ph.D. at IMSc Chennai under the supervision of Prof. Saket Saurabh, and a 5-year Integrated Degree course in Applied Mathematics at the IIT Roorkee.

My nickname is Pratik, and I prefer it in informal communications.
