नमस्ते (Namaste)! I'm a graduate student
in The Robotics Institute
, at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science
I'm currently being advised by Jeff Schneider
on problems around designing deep reinforcement learning algorithms for safe and sample efficient training of autonomous vehicles.
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 flowing through 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
and pursue diverse forms of rapid bipedal locomotion
