I am an AI Center Fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I work with Kalika Bali and Monojit Choudhury. I am interested in working on problems that focus on democratizing language technologies.

I have been fortunate to work with an amazing set of researchers in the past. I did my bachelor thesis at Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Dave Touretzky. I also interned at University College London with Emine Yilmaz and Rishabh Mehrotra. Prior to doing research, I spent two summers with Google Summer of Code working for Julia Language and Mozilla.

I graduated with a B.Tech (Hons.) in Electronics and Instrumentation from BITS Pilani, Goa, India in 2019. For more details, check my CV or hit me up on my email.
