Bio

I am PhD candidate majoring in Computer Science at Arizona State University, working under the supervision of Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati. Before starting out with my PhD, I did my Master's at the University of Southern California. At USC, I worked at the Interaction Lab while being mentored by Dr. Ross Mead and also at IDM Lab while being supervised by Dr. T. K. Satish Kumar. I completed my Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering at the Visvesvaraya Technological University, India.
