Curriculum Vitae

Research

I am interested in studying how humans and machines recognize objects in complex and natural visual scenes, by blending psychophysical methods with machine learning modeling. Psychophysics enables rapid experimentation to identify and model the brain's underlying computations. Machine learning modeling, particularly with deep neural networks, helps scale simple perceptual models to complex behavioral tasks and hence allow for better model-human comparison, while also yielding more robust, generalizable computational systems.

I am a PhD student in Cognition & Perception at New York University, advised by Dr. Denis Pelli. Previously, I completed my undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering at BITS Pilani, India. My past work has broadly focused on machine learning, featuring frequent cameos by cognitive science and neuroscience.
