I am a first year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley advised by Prof. Joseph Gonzalez and Prof. Prabal Dutta. I am broadly interested in systems for machine learning, and machine learning for the edge. I am affiliated with the RISE Lab, Lab11, and Berkeley AI Research (BAIR).

Previously, I spent two wonderful years as a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I was advised by Prateek Jain from the Machine Learning and Optimization Group, Harsha Vardhan Simhadri and Vivek Seshadri from the Systems Group.


I also enjoy participating in Hackathons occasionally:
[2020] TensorFlow 2.2 Challenge , LA Hacks , Citadel Terminal Live
[2019] PayPal Hack

Prior to this, I obtained a B.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from R.V. College of Engineering in 2017 (awarded University Gold Medal). During my undergraduate program, I worked with Prof. M.M. Nayak from Center for Nano Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science from 2016-2017. I was an intern with Siemens R&D in the summer of 2015.
