I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore with a research focus on Machine Learning and related areas. I am supervised by Prof. Partha Pratim Talukdar, and have been affiliated with the Machine And Language Learning Lab (MALL Lab) since August 2018.

Prior to graduate school, I received my Bachelor of Engineering (BE Hons.) in Computer Science from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani) in 2015.


I am broadly interested in Machine Learning with a particular focus on Natural Language and Knowledge Graphs. Previously, during my undergraduate studies, I have worked on swarm robotics and computer vision.
