About me

I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at University of Maryland, College Park. I am advised by Dr. Rama Chellappa. My research interests are in the areas of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. More specifically, my research focusses on building domain invariant representations for images and text. I am also interested in generative models, adversarial learning and multimodal learning

Previously, I obtained a Bachelor's degree (B.Tech), with a major in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Operations Research from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.
