I am a PhD student at Mila, University of Montreal with Prof. Chris Pal as my supervisor.

Previously, I worked as a Research Fellow with Prof. C. V. Jawahar at the Applied Research Lab, CVIT, IIIT-Hyderabad. I worked on projects involving automatic translation of videos into different languages, with applications in educational video dubbing.

I was also a Mentor for the Foundations of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning certificate program by IIIT-H Machine Learning Lab. I designed tutorials and lab sessions, and mentored industry professionals. I also worked as a Computer Vision consultant for Playment on semantic segmentation for autonomous driving.

Prior to that, I worked at GreyOrange Robotics on computer vision modules in embedded systems for real time pattern recognition in videos for warehouse automation, and on autonomous robots; and at Airbus, India on software development and integration.

I graduated from IIT Kharagpur, India, in 2014 with a Dual Degree (B.Tech. (H) + M.Tech.) in Electrical Engineering, my Master’s specialization was Instrumentation and Signal Processing.
