I am a fifth year PhD student at the Yochan lab, Arizona State University (ASU), working under the supervision of Prof. Subbarao Kambhampati (President, AAAI: Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence). My broad research areas include Social Computing, Machine Learning and Crowdsourced Planning. Before coming to ASU, I pursued M.S by thesis and B.Tech (Honours) in Computer Science from IIIT-Hyderabad under the supervision of Prof. Vikram Pudi.

I'm on the job market!
