I am a Machine Learning PhD student working with Prof. James Hays in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. My research interests lie in the intersection of Computer Vision, Graphics and Machine Learning. Particularly I am interested in exploring generative models for images conditioned on sparse user guidance to allow 2D or 3D content authoring. I am also interested in exploring the theoretical limits and capabilities of generative models.

I did my Masters in ECE with a specialization in Signal processing and Controls at Georgia Tech. Before that, I did my Bachelors at National Institute of Technology, Karnataka (NITK).

I also enjoy hiking, photography, speed cubing and picking up random skills.
