I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) working on computer vision and machine learning. My current research focuses on modeling people and scenes over (3D) space and time, with applications including 3D recognition, video understanding and physical reasoning. I obtained a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) where I worked with Deva Ramanan (here's a link to my dissertation). Earlier I graduated with a masters from CMU as well, working with Martial Hebert, Abhinav Gupta, Kris Kitani and David Fouhey as a Siebel Scholar. Even before I was a CS undergrad at IIIT, Hyderabad, working with C. V. Jawahar. I have also been fortunate to work with some amazing people through internships, at DeepMind (with Andrew Zisserman, João Carreira and Carl Doersch), Adobe Research (with Josef Sivic and Bryan Russell) and Facebook AI (with Lorenzo Torresani, Georgia Gkioxari and Du Tran).
Interns and Collaborators
I have had the opportunity to mentor and collaborate with some great upcoming researchers and students, including the following. I am always happy to collaborate with enthusiastic PhD students in computer vision/machine learning, to work with me in New York. For summer internships, we typically review applications between November and February. The slots are usually limited, but please reach out if interested.
Inspired by the amazing work of David Fouhey, I have dabbled in the fine art of joke publications. Here's a taste.
