About Me

I am currently a Research Scientist at Instadeep Ltd., Cambridge, MA. I will be working on genomics and bio-related AI solutions leveraging and trainng foundation models.

I graduated with a PhD from NYU Tandon in 2023, and was advised by Dr. Chinmay Hegde during my time there. I was previously a PhD student at Iowa State University (2018-2019) with Dr. Hegde and Dr. Soumik Sarkar. My primary research areas are Robust Learning of deep neural models and Generative models with structured constraints. I graduated with Bachelors(Hons.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from BITS Pilani, Goa in 2014.

I interned at Meta as a Machine Learning SWE in the Instagram Reels Ranking team in summer’22. Here, I built ensemble based ranking models for Reels Ranking for various surfaces that improved user engagement by increasing training periodicity from daily to hourly.

I interned at Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI), Pittsburgh under the supervision of Dr. Leonid Boytsov and Dr. Filippe Condessa in the summer of 2021 where I worked on Randomized Smoothing for Video Classifiers.

I used to be a Lead Computer Scientist at Sigtuple Inc. and worked on learning based systems for medical images (retinal and radiological).
