Thanks for visiting my website.
I am a Sr. Research Scientist at Runway working on AI-enabled tools for creativity. I graduated from CMU with a Master’s in Computer Vision where I was advised by Prof. Shubham Tulsiani. Before joining CMU, I worked as a Data Scienist at Couture AI where I deployed AI algorithms at scale for use-cases in audio, video, and, text domains.
I received B. E. (Hons.) in Computer Science from BITS Pilani in 2019. Subsequently, I worked as a Research Assistant with Prof. Venkatesh Babu (VAL, IISc) where I studied data and compute efficient techniques for Knowledge transfer and Robustness across domains and tasks. Here are my publications.
In the past, I have also been fortunate to work with outstanding researchers in India at BITS Pilani, Samsung Research and CEERI.

A summary of my past work
For details, here are my lists of publications, work experience, and the projects I’ve worked on in the past.
When I’m not working, I usually find myself practicing Carnatic Vocal Music and playing the Venu (Carnatic Flute). I’m a huge fan of Sandbox & Open world games (especially Minecraft!). I started playing Chess during the lockdown.
