I am a
first second year CS Ph.D. student at UT Austin working with Prof. Kristen Grauman.
My research interest lies broadly in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. I am currently working on video understanding and video-language models.
Prior to this, I spent five wonderful years at IIT Bombay where I completed my Dual Degree (B.Tech and M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering.
In my masters thesis, I was supervised by Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri where I worked on 3D reconstruction from multi-view images.
I occasionally write blogs about my projects, experiences, travels and thoughts. You can find the blogs below and also in archive. I appreciate questions or feedbacks regarding any of my project, blog or more broadly, my experience. Please email me.

This project is being done in Autumn 2020 semester and expected date of completion is December 2020. We attempt to experiment with RL algorithms to automate Dots and Boxes, a popular high-school pen and paper game.
This blog contains report of Research and Development project done in the supervision of Prof. Parag Chaudhuri, IIT Bombay. In this proect, I developed a novel AR-based table top game which fits into the terrian of the scene and adjusts the game object based on the markers. The characters can move in 3D world with correct spatial understanding.
This is one of my many hobby projects done this semester. It is aimed to learning how to use Hardwares for AR/VR. I wanted to experiment with the Leap Motion Controller as soon as I knew about it.
In this blog, I include final report of the Electronic Design Lab (EDL) project done under the guidance of Prof. Pramod Murali. The report contains all the relevant details including circuit diagram, results, flowcharts.
This project was done as a part of the Microprocessors course at IIT Bombay. The microprocessor design was done for both multi-cylce and pipleined architecture. The theory required for the project was taught alongisde during 5th Semester in my undergraduate course by Prof Virendra Singh, IIT Bombay.
Google Summer of Code is an annual Open Source program which selects open source enthusiasts who work on interesting projects under many different open source organizations. The aim of the program is to promote open source and to teach the practices of good coding skills. The program is high competitive and the acceptance rate is around 20-25%.
I was selected in dipy - an open source organization in Medical Imaging. My mentor is an Assistant Professor at Indiana University, Bloomington.
The blog contains my overall experience as a GSoCer.
I was selected as a research intern under Prof Anastasios Bezerianos and Prof Nitish Thakor, at SINAPSE (Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology), at NUS (National University of Singapore). I worked in eastablishing brain connectivity patterns during creative thinking. I explored how the EEG (Electroencephelogram) brain pattern changes during creative thinking and established statistical differences between the two states of mind.
Blog on Research and Development Project done under Prof Amit Sethi, IIT Bombay.
Lists down some other projects done as part of my curriculum at IIT Bombay. The topics covered by projects listed here includes signal processing, online learning, electrical circuits, microcontroller programming etc.
The aim of the project is to develop a fully functional Augmented Reality based Chess game application.
STALLED. Done indepenently by Rishi Vanukuru
The aim of this project is to develop a fully functional Augmented Reality based Location Assistant.
STALLED. If you are a junior/sophomore at IITB and this project intrigues you, I can mentor you. Email me.
