I have recently graduated with a B.Tech in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur). I am interested in research related to Machine Learning and Computer Vision, and its applications in building agents exhibiting intelligent behavior.

Previously, I worked with Manolis Savva and Angel X. Chang on embodied navigation. At IIT Kanpur, I worked with Ashutosh Modi on Natural Language Understanding.
