I am second year PhD student in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University. My research interests include Machine Learning, Robotics, Structural Prediction and Convex Optimization. I am very fortunate to work with Ashutosh Saxena and Thorsten Joachims.
Before coming to Cornell I spent five wonderful years at IIT Delhi where I got my Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and Masters in Information and Communication Technology. While at IIT I was fortunate to work with Manik Varma and S. V. N. Vishwanathan. I have also spent a summer as an undergraduate research student at Purdue University.
