Saksham Suri

I am a second year Ph.D student in the department of Computer Science at University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, advised by Dr. Abhinav Shrivastava. My research lies in the field of computer vision and machine learning.

I completed my undergrad at IIIT Delhi (2015 - 2019) majoring in Computer Science and Engineering where I worked at IAB Lab and Precog. During the summer of 2018 I got the chance to intern at MCL at USC Viterbi Shool of Engineering. Post my graduation, I went for a short internship at IBM Research.

In the past, I have been fortunate to have worked with (in no particular order) Rama Chellappa, Mayank Vatsa, Richa Singh, Ponnurangam Kumaraguru, C. -C. Jay Kuo, Anush Sankaran and many other super-talented people!

I'm interested in computer vision, machine learning and deep learning. My current research focuses on discovering and grouping image sources in the wild. I am also looking into scenarios of sparse annotations and understanding concepts learnt by networks.
