Junior Research Fellow at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore, India. :india:


I am currently working as a Junior Research Fellow at Visual Computing Lab (IISc.) where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Anirban Chakraborty. I have completed my bachelor’s in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Delhi University, India.

I am interested in developing algorithms that can emulate powerful aspects of human cognition, such as robustness to novel inputs (machine learning robustness) and efficient transfer of prior knowledge to novel environments (learning with limited data). My current work is focused on training robust DNNs under challenging scenarios like the absence of training data, limited-supervision, etc.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions / want to discuss research directions, collaborate etc.
