Hi! I am a fourth year Ph.D. student at the Computer Vision Lab, Virginia Tech. My advisor is Devi Parikh. I am broadly interested in computer vision and machine learning.

On the vision side, I am interested in problems in vision and language, learning common sense and visual reasoning. On the machine learning side, I am interested in developing tools for effective low-shot learning, generative models, bayesian deep learning and variational inference.

I also care about issues of how we evaluate our models, as we edge towards higher-level AI-complete tasks. In my first project in grad school, I worked on a (now popularly used) evaluation metric for image captioning called CIDEr.

I have been fortunate to work with some great mentors and collaborators during grad school, including Larry Zitnick, Dhruv Batra, Kevin Murphy, Gal Chechik, and Samy Bengio.

In a previous life, I was an undergrad in ECE at IIIT-Hyderabad where I worked with K. Madhava Krishna in Robotics. Here is a link to my old website.
