Prior to this, I was working in the Perceptual Computing space on Object Recognition at Intel Corporation, with application to self-driving cars.
I completed my Masters in the Electrical & Computer Engineering department at the University of Florida, Gainesville. At UF, I was fortunate to work under the supervision of Dr. Eakta Jain, on modeling saliency in comic art.
My research interests span across computer vision, machine learning, and robotics. I am highly motivated to work at the intersection of vision and language using reinforcement learning. During my doctoral studies, I wish to be working towards building systems that are able to perceive the world as much as humans do in an open loop allowing them to reinforce learning and evolve with time just as humans. Currently my work focuses on designing reinforcement algorithms which are more interpretable in context of their behavior. I am broadly interested in understanding the latent space during the life-time of an agent in the perceptual domain.
Before joining IITK, I was working at Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions Limited (RBEI), as a Software Engineer. I completed my undergraduate studies at VIT University, India with a B.Tech degree in Electronics & Communication Engineering.
