About Me

I am a third year PhD student in Dept. Of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. I am being advised by Prof. Vishal M Patel. Prior to joining Johns Hopkins, I worked for Samsung R&D Institute-Bangalore. I graduated from IIIT-Bangalore with a Master's degree in Information Technology.
My research is on computer vision and machine learning with a specific focus on crowd analytics, face detection, applications of generative modeling, domain adaptation and low-level vision.
