About Me

I am an Applied Scientist at Amazon. Previously, I had worked as a Research Staff Member with Prof.Venkatesh Babu's lab in Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, working on machine learning and computer vision.

I received my M.S in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California in 2015. At USC, my degree emphasized on Machine Learning and Signal Processing.

I obtained B.E degree in Electrical Engineering from RVCE in 2013. During my B.E, I was a computer vision research intern at ADE.

Research Interests

My primary research interests are in machine learning and deep learning applied to computer vision. In particular, I am interested in generalized object detection (cross-depiction), colorization of scenes, learning strategies for deep learning, hierarchical deep networks, deep-ensembles and dense object counting.
