Chandrakana Nandi

I am a graduate student in the PLSE group in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington, Seattle. I work with Dan Grossman and Zachary Tatlock.


My current research is on developing and applying programming language techniques to build synthesis tools and fast compilers for computational geometry and fabrication. Check out our tools, papers, talks and more here.

Fun stuff

We have a fantastic running club as part of which we run all over Seattle. We also take part in numerous marathons, half-marathons and relay races!

My mom has a cool recipe blog that I help maintain. Feel free to check it out. She regularly adds delicious recipes!
