Srikanth Srinivasan got his undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, where his interest in the theory side of CS was piqued under the tutelage of N. S. Narayanswamy. Subsequently, he obtained his Ph.D. from The Institute of Mathematical Sciences in 2011, where his advisor was V. Arvind. His research interests span all of TCS (in theory), but in practice are limited to circuit complexity, derandomization, and related areas of mathematics. He looks back fondly at the days when he enjoyed running and pretending to play badminton.
