नमस्ते, Howdy!

Recently, I completed my Bachelor of Engineering from RV College of Engineering, Bangalore, India with a focus on electrical and computer science.

During winter (2020) and summer (2019), I interned at KIXLAB and worked under the supervision of Dr. Juho Kim, associate professor at KAIST. Previously, I have interned at Samsung R&D Institute India - Bangalore (SRIB), SCCI Labs under the guidance of Dr. Sudarshan Iyengar, associate professor at Indian Institute of Technology Ropar, & Hasura Technologies.

Although my research interests are still evolving, I am broadly interested to explore the domain of Human-AI Interaction, ie. the entire spectrum of human interaction with machine intelligence, from making AI accessible for everyone to understanding the impact of AI in human lives as well as building Human-Centered AI systems, by combining machine and human intelligence effectively, for solving social-computational problems. In this respect, I am currently learning about machine learning and human-computer interaction.

Apart from these topics, I am also interested in Computational Social Science, Natural Language Processing, and Data Science, specifically in understanding and modeling human behavior in technological systems such as online social networks and Wikipedia. And I am always open to new exciting research problems in other related domains!

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, documentaries, and Anime (big fan of Naruto だってばよ!), as well as playing chess and table tennis.
