Hello! I am a researcher in computer vision and machine learning. My present research focus is understanding visual representations. I blog about similar topics and also maths and programming in general.

Presently, I am an AI Resident at Facebook AI Research working with Dr. Ari Morcos and Priya Goyal. Before this, I was master’s student at the University of Guelph and Vector Institute, working with Prof Graham Taylor at the Machine Learning Research Group. Even further back, I was a research assistant at the Visual Computing Lab at the Indian Institute Of Science working with Prof Anirban Chakraborty and Prof Anand Mishra. I did my bachelor’s in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Indian Institute Of Technology (ISM) Dhanbad in 2017. I have also spent time working in the industry either working or collaborating with NEXT-AI Toronto, Layer6 AI Toronto, Shell R&D Center Bangalore, HyperWorks Imaging Bangalore and Samsung Research Institute Delhi.
