I am a visiting research scholar at the Georgia Institute of Technology, supervised by Devi Parikh and Dhruv Batra, working closely with Stefan Lee and Peter Anderson. I am primarily interested in deep learning, with applications in computer vision and natural language processing. Before my current position, I completed my undergraduate major in Electrical Engineering and minor in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee.
During my undergraduate studies, I was selected twice as a Google Summer of Code student, with TARDIS Foundation (2016) and the OpenCV Foundation (2017). Parallel to my second Google Summer of Code, I was a software engineering intern at Goldman Sachs, Bangalore. I was also an active member of the Mobile Development Group IITR, and co-founded a reading group to encourage students towards reading academic literature, now named Vision and Language Group.
