About Me

I am a PhD student (2016-) at Carnegie Mellon, working in computer vision with Deva Ramanan. Earlier I graduated with a masters from CMU itself, working with Martial Hebert, Abhinav Gupta, Kris Kitani and David Fouhey, and was named a Siebel Scholar. I was a CS undergrad at IIIT, Hyderabad, working with C. V. Jawahar.

In 2016, I spent an awesome summer at CTL, Adobe Research (SF) with Josef Sivic and Bryan Russell. Earlier in 2013, I was one of fourteen students from India to intern at the Facebook HQ (Menlo Park, CA). I worked on graph search with Yuval Kesten and also collaborated with Craig Campbell.
