My research has been centered around exploring and developing efficient learning (few-, weak-) approaches to tackle structured output tasks (detection, segmentation) across images and videos.
During my PhD, I've spent time as an intern at Google Research (2023) and Meta AI (2022) working on video understanding.
Prior to this I spent three years at Twenty Billion Neurons GmbH (20bn) in Berlin, Germany; working on video understanding under the supervision of Roland Memisevic, PhD.
I obtained Integrated M.Tech. (5-year programme) from IIT Delhi with Mathematics and Computing as my major.

* I'm looking for full-time industrial roles. If you see a fit, please reach out!
