- “Dual Loomis-Whitney inequalities via information theory”,with Varun Jog, Entropy, Special Issue "Entropy and Information Inequalities", arXiv: 1901.06789
- Quasi-quadratic residue codes and hyperelliptic curves”, with Nigel Boston, AMS CONM volume on ”Algebraic curves and their applications”
- An entropy inequality for symmetric random variables. With Varun Jog.
- The Weight Distribution of Quasi-quadratic Residue Codes. With Nigel Boston. to appear in

I worked with a lovely high school lady Ka with a project on RSA cryptosystem. Click here for a picture of us. Ka is the one on the left.
