I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University advised by Professor Bharath Hariharan. My primary research interest lies in the intersection of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. In particular, I am interested in building visual recognition systems with little to no supervision, i.e., few-shot learning, semi-supervised learning, self-supervised learning and unsupervised learning.

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. At Michigan, I was advised by Professor Jenna Wiens, working on Machine Learning applications in healthcare.
