I am Rachit Chhaya. I have recently joined as An Assistant Professor at DA-IICT. Prior to that I was a Ph.D. scholar in Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar, working with my advisor Prof. Anirban Dasgupta. I am currently waiting for my thesis defense. I work in areas of Machine Learning and Data Science. My chief research interests lie constructing coresets for Machine Learning Problems Involving Regularization, Fairness Constraints etc. I am fortunate to collaborate with my advisor and friends, Jayesh Choudhari and Supratim Shit.

Prior to joining Ph.D., I did by M.Tech. in ICT from DA-IICT Gandhinagar, working with Prof. Prasenjit Majumder and B.Tech. in I.T. from Nirma University.

I am passionate about teaching. Apart from research and academia, my hobbies include Reading (Mostly Fiction), Quizzing and Watching Tennis, Cricket and Football.
