I am currently working in the Artificial Intelligence group at Microsoft Research, Redmond.

I graduated with an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University with a specialization in Computational Intelligence. I completed my graduate thesis under the mentorship of Dr. Tianfu Wu. Prior to this, I received a B. Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Karnataka.

In the past, my work primarily focused on deep reinforcement learning and computer vision. I am now interested in model-based and probabilistic deep learning.

My research is driven by my motivations to eliminate dependence on large labelled datasets and to design learning algorithms which are capable of reasoning, imagination and multi-task performance.
