I am working with Prof. Rupam Mahmood at University of Alberta on Artificial Intelligence.

My long-term research goal is to understand the working of our minds. Specifically, to find the fundamental computational principles that give rise to the Mind. In pursuit of this goal, I’m working on various aspects of representation learning and real-world reinforcement learning.

I did my Master’s in Computing Science at the Univeristy of Alberta, where I was supervised by Prof. Richard Sutton and Prof. Rupam Mahmood. Previously, I did my undergrad at IIT Kanpur, where I majored in Computer Science and Engineering. I worked with Prof. Harish Karnick on Abstractive Text Summarization.

Apart from research, I love to spend time climbing, kickboxing, social dancing, playing board games, and in the mountains.
