नमस्ते (Namaste)! I'm a graduate student
), at The Robotics Institute
, in CMU's School of Computer Science
I'm currently being advised by Jeff Schneider
on using deep reinforcement learning to train autonomous vehicles.
More broadly, I enjoy building systems and platforms that solve challenging problems and add meaningful societal value.
In the past, I've had the incredible fortune to have worked with and been mentored by:
, with whom I designed machine learning algorithms to understand the
impact of climate change on coral reefs, through my work as a
Caltech Summer Research Fellow
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
and C.H. Ishwara Chandra
whose mentorship at the National Center for Radio Astrophysics
), an amazing team and I built distributed imaging synthesis pipelines to crunch through data collected by world's largest sub-GHz frequency radio telescope,
, and in the process enable a deeper understanding of our cosmos.
and Akshay Uttama Nambi
at Microsoft Research
with whom I designed streaming algorithms to efficiently analyze and determine statistical properties of data in large scale networks.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to India where I attended school for close to a decade. I still enjoy spending time in both countries.
In my spare time I love to read
books, listen to classical fusion,
and try new types of food
