About me

I am a second year PhD student at CS Department in UW Madison (2018-), advised by Prof. Vikas Singh. I completed my B.Tech from IIT Bombay in Computer Science where I was advised by Prof. Ganesh Ramakrishnan.
After my undergraduate, I worked as a software engineer for Google in Bangalore. I was a part of Maps team which handles automoderation of user generated edits on Google Maps. I feel very fortunate to be guided by amazing mentors.


My current research interests include

  • Deep Learning methods for Computer Vision

  • Optimal Transport

  • Fairness in CV

  • Knowledge Distillation
