I am a first-year graduate student at MIT, supervised by Iyad Rahwan. My research interests are in artificial intelligence, computer vision and computational social science. I am supported by an Emerging Worlds Fellowship. Prior to this, I received a master's degree in Computer Science and bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering at IIT Delhi, where I was supervised by Sumeet Agarwal.

I am broadly interested in large-scale computer vision and machine learning problems, and their applications to constrained environments with limited, noisy and fine-grained training data. I also enjoy studying the proliferation of imagery in online media using computer vision and collective intelligence. In the past, I have also spent time at the Harvard University Department of Economics, as a post-baccalaureate fellow supervised by Prof. Edward Glaeser, where I worked on predicting housing prices using computer vision; UC Berkeley, as an engineer under Dr. Allen Yang, working on face recognition on handheld devices; MIT Media Lab, under Prof. Ramesh Raskar, where I worked on object tracking and modeling urban perception; Virginia Tech department of ECE, as a summer intern under Prof. Dhruv Batra (now at Georgia Tech), where I worked on large-scale distributed machine learning. At IIT Delhi, I worked under Prof. Sumeet Agarwal, Prof. Jayadeva and Prof. Manik Varma, on various problems in computer vision and machine learning. I also occasionally dabble at writing.
