I am a PhD student in the Electrical Engineering department, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, advised by Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri and Prof. Siddhartha Chaudhuri. My research interests is in Haptic Perception, Machine Learning and Optimization Techniques. My PhD thesis focuses on learning a perceptual distance metric for multi-modal data and active learning algorithms. In the past, I have worked in the domain of multi-modal rendering where I developed different rendering techiniques to model deformable objects.

Research Interests:

  • Machine/Deep learning and its applications

  • Metric learning, embedding techniques

  • Active learning

  • Optimization
