Research Interests

  • Applied deep learning
  • Optimization techniques
  • Casual Inference
  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Language Representation
  • Statistical Sampling Techniques


I am an E3 Intern in the LIONS Lab at EPFL. In 2021, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering with Minors in Cognitive Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IIT Kanpur). My research goals lie broadly in Applied Deep Learning;  understanding mathematical properties regarding the structures of Neural Networks and designing and analysing algorithms that can exploit their properties. With interests in Efficient Optimisation techniques and Causal Inference, I am keen on exploring how such approaches can aid towards robust solutions to problems in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. My interests also span Computational Neuroscience, Language Representation and Statistical Sampling Techniques.
