Hey! I am a PhD student at the MURGe-Lab at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, where I work with Prof. Mohit Bansal. My research goal is to better exploit structures, geometrical properties and invariances in ML models and to make them more interpretable, robust and fair.

Over the past few years, I have been fortunate to work with Prof. Partha Talukdar at MALL-Lab at Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, with Dr. Prateek Jain at Microsoft Research India and with Prof. Arun Rajkumar at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. I was also at LinkedIn AI Bangalore for a year. Before all this, I completed my undergraduate degree in mathematics in 2018 from IISc, Bangalore and my bachelor’s thesis was supervised by Prof. Partha Talukdar and Prof. Kaushal Verma.

Check out my publication page to know more about my current research. I am also actively involved in improving the way science is taught to students, through simple experiments and conducting workshops via Notebook Drive.
