I am a first year Masters student at University of Alberta working on Artificial Intelligence, and I am interested in understanding the working of our minds. Specifically, I want to understand the fundamental principles that take us from the firing of individual neurons to the Mind.

My current research interests are along the lines of the long-standing challenges of AI specifically, scalable knowledge construction and reasoning. An important issue that has recently captured my imagination is that of AI safety.

I did my undergrad from IIT Kanpur majoring in Computer Science. I have been fortunate enough to work under the guidance of some great people. In the summers of 2017, I was a research assistant to Prof. Richard Sutton. During my undergrad, I got to work under the guidance of Prof. Harish Karnick on Abstractive Summarization.
