Sindhu B. Hegde
PhD Student, University of Oxford
Hi! I am a first year PhD student in the Visual Geometry Group (VGG) at the University of Oxford, supervised by Prof. Andrew Zisserman. My research is in Computer Vision, particularly in multimodal learning, video understanding and self-supervised learning.
Prior to joining Oxford, I worked as a Lead Data Scientist @ Verisk Analytics. Before that, I pursued Masters’ by Research (MS) at Centre for Visual Information Technology (CVIT), IIIT Hyderabad supervised by Prof. C V Jawahar (IIIT-H) and Prof. Vinay Namboodiri (University of Bath, UK). My Masters’ research focused on exploiting the redundancies in vision and speech modalities for cross-modal generation.
Research interests: Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Video Understanding, Multi-modal Learning: Vision + Speech/Language
