About me

  • I am a PhD student at Vector Institute and University of Calgary, supervised by Dr. Yani Ioannou and Dr. Rahul Krishnan.
  • My research goal is to develop machine learning (ML) algorithms that have the human-like ability to continuously learn (continual/lifelong learning) and generalize well using minimal or no labeled data (self- supervised learning) for applications in computer vision, in particular, medical imaging. I’m also interested in understanding learning in neural networks using Neural Tangent Kernels.
  • I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and MASc degree from the University of Waterloo.

Academic Services:

  • Reviewer: ICLR 2021, UAI 2022, NeurIPS 2022, CVPR 2023, ICCV 2023, UAI 2023
  • Co-host of Self-Supervised Learning reading group at Vector Insitute. Feel free to reach out if you’re interested in joining the reading group.
