I am a second year computer science MS student at Georgia Tech, advised by Prof. Devi Parikh. I earned my Bachelors in Computer Engineering in 2018 from College of Engineering Pune, India.

In the past couple of years, I have had the fortune to intern / conduct research at AiBee Inc., Palo Alto (Summer 2019) mentored by Chunhui Gu and Juan Carlos Niebles and; Cyber-Physical Systems Research Group, NTU Singapore (Summer 2017) mentored by Dr. Arvind Easwaran and Anupam Chattopadhyay, on a diverse set of topics - ranging from vision & language to cyber security.

In my free time, I play the Harmonium instrument. I am very passionate about music. I love to learn about different music styles and their histories. I am also a trained Bharatnatyam dancer.

Research

I am currently working on developing AI models that can learn about visual and language-based incongruities in nature, and leverage this information to induce creativity in potentially boring objects. I think exploring the creation of AI that can better understand human preferences through the use of common sense reasoning is interesting. More generally, I am interested in the broad areas of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing.
