Trisha Mittal

I am a 3rd year Computer Science PhD student at University of Maryland, College Park. I am a member of the GAMMA Lab and am advised by Prof. Dinesh Manocha. At present my research is in Affective Computing.

Prior to this, I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) and a Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Information Technology from International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B), India. This was a five-year dual-degree undergraduate program (August 2013 - July 2018).
