I am a postdoc with the Machine Learning Group of Cambridge University, supervised by Dr Adrian Weller. From 2017-2022, I was a PhD student with the Computer Science department of IIT Bombay advised by two amazing researchers: Prof. Sunita Sarawagi and Prof. Soumen Chakrabarti. I am passionate about research challenges that arise when deploying Machine Learning systems in the wild. My PhD was supported by Google PhD Fellowship.

Before joining IIT Bombay, I had spent two wonderful years as a research member staff at Amuse Labs contributing features to a digital archival project called ePADD. I graduated with computer science majors from IIT Mandi and that is where I found my love for trekking.
