I’m a first year Ph.D. student in CIS at University of Pennsylvania advised by Prof. Jianbo Shi and Prof. James C. Gee.

I’m working on segmentation, contrastive learning, and computer vision problems in general.

I completed my Masters in Robotics at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Prof. Katia Sycara. I also worked with Prof. Kayhan Batmanghelich on segmentation for medical images.

I completed my bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay in 2019. My undergraduate thesis is based on Perfect Sampling and Uncertainty Estimation in Deep Networks where I was advised by Prof. Suyash P. Awate.
