Hi! I am a first year Ph.D. student under the supervision of George Drettakis with the GraphDeco group at INRIA Sophia Antipolis-Méditerranée working on Image-Based Rendering.

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 B.Tech (hons.) from IIIT Hyderabad, where I was advised by Prof. P J Narayanan as an honors student at Centre for Visual Information Technology (CVIT). In my honors thesis, I explored the area of computational photography and image representation. I spent Summer 2017 in the beautiful city of Tübingen, interning with the Perceiving Systems group under Prof. Michael Black at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems to study challenges in real-time computer vision tasks on commercial smartphones.
