I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science department at Virginia Tech's College of Engineering, advised by Prof. Naren Ramakrishnan.
My research falls under the umbrella of Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning and Data Mining.
Currently, I am affiliated with Discovery Analytics Centre (DAC) . Before joining DAC, I have worked at the Crowd Intelligence Lab at Virginia Tech where I was involved in building intelligent systems combining crowdsourcing and AI.
I've spent two wonderful summers('18 & '19) at Netflix where we concieved a novel machine learning solution for a practical problem. Prior to joining grad school, I double majored in Computer Science and Mathematics from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani. During my undergrad I have dabbled with Computer Graphics leading to my Masters thesis titled 'A Comparative Study of Rendering Techniques' where I implemented and compared the performance of Ray Tracing and Reyes Image Rendering techniques. After graduating I joined Dreamworks Animation as a Technical Director on the feature film Penguins of Madagascar (2014) and later moved to an engineering role in R&D. Some of the places I have interned at during my undergrad include Dreamworks Animation (spring '14), GlobalLogic (summer '11 & '12) and Harish Chandra Research Institute (mid-summer '12). I was a recipient of the MITACS Globalink Research Internship grant in summer '13 which I spent in Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada.
My research is graciously supported by DARPA and NSF.
