Unnamed

πŸ‘‹πŸ½ My name is Neeldhara Misra. I am a faculty member with the discipline of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar. My research interests include the interplay of structural graph theory and graph algorithms; tools and techniques in parameterized complexity; computational perspectives on combinatorial games; voting mechanisms, with a special focus on strategic behaviour; fair allocations of resources.

I am also keen on understanding means of bringing computational thinking to school education, and using visual tools and narratives for exposition in general.

In 2007, I finished a Bachelors in Science in three majors β€” Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics, from Mount Carmel College (Bangalore). The Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST) was one of the very few national exams that I was eligible to write at this point, and this eventually led me to graduate school β€” specifically an integrated PhD program β€” at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMSc).

After graduating from IMSc in 2012, I spent the next three years at the Department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).

One of the things I enjoy most about my work is the opportunities that it brings to connect with others, so in case you feel similarly and would like to exchange notes, give me a heads up! I tend to be fairly active on Twitter and am trying to get better at email β€” I'll look forward to hearing from you πŸ™‚
