I work in algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in motivic homotopy theory and motivic cohomology, and their application to questions in algebraic geometry. My research interests also include algebraic cycles, K-theory and commutative algebra.

I co-organized the conference Algebraic cycles, Motives and K-theory, which took place between March 13-17, 2023 at TIFR.

Swarnava Mukhopadhyay and I are organizing a preprint seminar on algebraic geometry and related areas this semester.
