I am a research scientist at Specifio. Prior to joining Specifio, I recevied my M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Before joining USC, I earned a B.Tech in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology, Karnataka in 2015.

My main interests lie in the field of Artificial Intelligence and solving difficult problems using various Machine Learning techniques. I also love developing fun and entertaining applications. Here is something interesting I developed this summer. I blog too.

During my time at USC I worked with Dr. Laurent Itti at iLab (USC), where I work on various Computer Vision tasks.

I have also worked with Dr. Kevin Knight in the Natural Language Group at Information Sciences Institute.

Here is my Resume.
