Hi! I am a Ph.D. student under the supervision of George Drettakis in the GraphDeco team at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis.

I graduated with a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University, co-advised by Prof. Robert LiKamWa and Prof. Yezhou Yang in December 2018. During my masters I looked into problems at the intersection of visual computing and mobile systems, designing novel system and algorithms to improve mobile mixed reality experiences.

Previously, I obtained a bachelors from IIIT Hyderabad, where I was advised by Prof. P J Narayanan at the Centre for Visual Information Technology (CVIT) for my honors thesis in the area of computational photography and image representation. I spent Summer 2017 in the beautiful city of Tübingen, interning with the Perceiving Systems department under Prof. Michael Black and Anurag Ranjan at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.
