I work on topics in continual learning, attention mechanisms, robustness and non-linear dynamics, with a broad focus on theoretical deep learning, lifelong learning, representation learning and computer vision.
My previous work has mostly been at the intersection of dynamics and applied computer vision. I also work at the intersection of computer vision and astrophysical sciences.

Along with the applied deep learning aspects, I have a firm interest in abstract algebra and algebraic geometry.

Some recent topics:
  • Non-linear dynamics and loss landscapes
  • Continual Learning
  • Few Shot/ Zero Shot Semantic Segmentation
  • Attention Mechanisms
  • Image Synthesis
See recent publications and projects at Landskape for an idea of what I'm doing now.

As founder and researcher at my group Landskape, I collaborate and undertake research projects mostly at the intersection of analytical theory of deep learning and applied computer vision. Please visit our page for more details.

I will be joining MILA and Université de Montréal in Fall 2021 as a graduate student of computer science specializing in machine learning. Prior to this, I completed my undergraduate in Electronics and Electrical Engineering (EEE) from Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) under the guidance of Asst. Prof. Dr. Bhargav Appasani.

In the past I have been fortunate to work with the likes of Dr. Amrita Chaturvedi from Indian Institute of Technology, Varanasi (IIT-BHU) in the field of biomedical data analysis and Vijay Kumar Verma from Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in the domain of Genetic Algorithms. I have presented my work at conferences in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur and have been awarded the Research Travel Grant by KIIT.
I also had the honor of interning at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT-KGP) under Prof Pawan Kumar where I learnt about traditional AI and functional languages like Prolog and Lisp.

I am currently mentored by Prof. Jaegul Choo (KAIST) on topics of super resolution and image reconstruction.

Collaboration Opportunities and Referrals:

At Landskape, we are open to new collaborations and research members for our selected ongoing projects.
