I am a first year M.Sc. (Thesis) student at McGill University and Mila under the supervision of Prof. Siamak Ravanbakhsh. My research interests span representation learning (using symmetry, on graphs and images), causality, and generative models.

Previously, I was a Research Intern at PROSE at Microsoft, working on designing algorithms and evaluation set-ups for email classification in real-world (online) settings. I was fortunate to work on topological data analysis at Adobe Research, India and on explainability in pre-trained language models at INK-Lab, University of Southern California under Prof. Xiang Ren.

I earned my B. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. I was part of the CVIR Lab under the supervision of Prof. Abir Das and Dr. Rameswar Panda where I worked on contextual bias and multimodal learning problems.
