Hi, I am a fourth-year graduate student in the Princeton University Computer Science Department advised by Kai Li. You can contact me at sachinr at princeton dot edu.

Bio

I received my M.S.E from Princeton University in 2014. I attended University of Wisconsin-Madison as an undergraduate and received a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.S. in Mathematics in 2012. In the past I have done internships at Amazon and Twitter Cortex. My CV can be found here.

Research

My research interests are in deep learning and its applications in computer vision and natural language processing.
