About

I am a Computer Scientist at SRI International. I completed my PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park, under the guidance of Prof. Larry Davis. In my thesis, I addressed the problem of efficiently retrieving images from large databases based on complex and multi-modal queries. Before that, I completed my BTech. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. Here is my resume (pdf, html) (March 2014).
