I'm currently seeking industry positions starting Summer 2021. Here's my resume.

About Me

I am a final year PhD student in the Data and Information Systems (DAIS) Group, Computer Science Department, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), advised by Hari Sundaram.

The goal of my research is develop user-centric deep-learning models for Recommendation Systems, Graph Mining, Information Retrieval, Behavior Modeling and NLP. I aim to identify real-world constraints in training models, and overcome the implicit assumptions that underlie commonly employed training algorithms and model designs, such as graph convolution networks and neural collaborative filtering.

Prior to joining UIUC, I obtained my Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science at IIT Madras, supervised by Sayan Ranu. My undergraduate thesis was centered on problems surrounding Information Retrieval and Statistical Data Modeling.
