Kumar Krishna Agrawal

I am a graduate student at EECS, UC Berkeley. Previously I was a researcher at Google Brain, part of the Google Brain Residency. My research is motivated by the need to design algorithms which are resource (data / compute) efficient and theoretically grounded. Broadly, I am interested in machine learning, robotics and languages (programming / natural). I enjoy bringing together insights from fundamental research and algorithm design, to build sytems which work in the real-world.

Before this, I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur majoring in Mathematics and Computing. In the past, I've been fortunate to work under the guidance of Prof. Yoshua Bengio, Prof. Raman Arora and Prof. B. Sury.
