Brief Biography

I am a fifth year graduate student in Department of EECS at University of California, Berkeley (UCB), advised by BMW-Y:Prof. Martin Wainwright and Prof. Bin Yu. I am associated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research group (BAIR). My research interests include the interplay of Machine Learning, Optimization and Monte Carlo methods, with emphasis on better understanding of randomized algorithms used for machine learning tasks like inference, sampling and optimization.

I spent the last summer as a research intern with Lester Mackey at Microsoft Research, New England. I spent the summer in 2017 as a ML-research intern with Mist systems, Cupertino (recently acquired by Juniper networks). Prior to joining UC Berkeley, I worked for a year at WorldQuant Research, India at Mumbai as Senior Quantitative Researcher.

In the past, I have been supported by Berkeley Fellowship (2015-2017).

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT) with a B. Tech. (Honors) in Electrical Engineering and Minors in Mathematics in 2014. I was awarded the President of India Gold Medal (summa cum laude), Institute Silver Medal and Best B. Tech Project Award during my graduation at IIT Bombay. During my undergraduate studies, I was fortunate to work with Prof. V. S. Borkar, Prof. Pradeep Nair and Prof. Juzer Vasi on several projects.
