About Me

Hello! I am a second year Ph.D student advised by Prof. Hao (Richard) Zhang.
My research interests lie at the intersection of Computer Graphics and Vision, and in Machine Learning (particularly applications of deep learning for computer graphics). More details to come as my research evolves :)

Prior to joining SFU, I completed my M.Tech in Electrical Engineering (Signal Processing) from the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar in 2016, where I was supervised by Dr. Shanmuganathan Raman. During Jan-Feb 2016, I was a special visiting student at the Unoki lab at JAIST, Japan .

I completed my B.E in Electronics and Communications Engineering from PESIT (Now PES University), Bangalore in 2012.
