About

Hi!
I am currently a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Group at Princetons's Computer Science department. Currently, I am working with Dr. Adam Finkelstein. 

My long-term research goal is to build conversational artificial intelligence agents spanning modalities like speech and language. Most of my current researchhas focusedon audio perception and machine learning, to that end designing perceptual objective metrics for evaluating audio quality.

In the past, I have interned at Facebook Reality Labs Research (FRLR) in Redmond, WA, and another one at Adobe Research in San Francisco, CA.

I completed my B.Tech from Indian Institute Of Technology, Guwahati in 2018 in Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Research

Past Internships

In the summer of 2017, I interned at Carnegie Mellon University, PA - advised by Dr. Bhiksha Raj, who leads the Machine Learning and Speech Processing Group at LTI-CMU. We worked on the problem of retrieving all semantically similar audio given a query clip. Devised a novel siamese neural network based approach which encodes the audio into a vector representation which is useful for retrieving similar recordings.
Previously, in the summer of 2016, I interned at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT Delhi) advised by Dr. Tapan K. Gandhi, where I worked on various Machine Learning algorithms for analyzing and detecting the tumors in human brain using MR images. Designed a comprehensive tool where we could easily segment the tumor in the brain MR Image and then also see what 'Brodmann Area' it corresponds to.
