I am a Computer Science MSc student at ETH Zurich, planning to major in Machine Intelligence, with a focus on Computer Vision and Mobile Robotics. I did my
bachelors in Computer Science (w/ minor in Data Science) from BITS Pilani, Goa.
I wish to explore robotic visual perception and its applications in autonomous driving, intelligent reasoning, and scene understanding. After exploring a
breadth of vision-based research problem statements from dense reconstruction to depth estimation and optical character recognition, I find myself at the
minima of the Dunning Kruger curve. I am particularly curious about classical computer vision techniques and visual odometry pipelines, and how they can be
leveraged to make end-to-end deep learning pipelines tractable and resource constrained.
I finished my undergraduate thesis as a Student Researcher at the Machine Learning and Optimization Team, Google Research India.
I was supervised by Dr. Prateek Jain and my work revolved around reducing the on-device
latency of large vision models for faster on-device inference. I spent my '22 summer in Karlsruhe, Germany at the Robot Vision Lab, HKA where I worked
on dense 3D Reconstruction using an Intel RealSense Camera with Dr. Niclas Zeller.
I was involved in various student projects at BITS Pilani, Goa including Project Kratos where I
led the Autonomous Subsystem of a Mars Rover prototype, and Society for AI and Deep Learning.
I like to believe I have a life outside of research and code :p. I like to read although I wish I had more time to indulge in books.
I love sports - anything. I have finished two half marathons, and a 25k trail run at Sethan Dome, India.
You might find me cycling to the university often. I play tennis, and Rafa remains the GOAT for me even if Djokovic goes on to win 30 gs.
And, I am up for a chess 10+0 or puzzle battle mostly all the time.
