Hi! I am a second 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
|Sep 2023||Our paper on GestSync: Determining who is speaking without a talking head accepted to BMVC 2023 (ORAL)|
|Jul 2023||Participated in the International Computer Vision Summer School (ICVSS)) at Sicily, Italy. Had an eincredible experience of learning from some of the most distinguished computer vision experts!|
|Oct 2022||Joined the Visual Geometry Group (VGG) at the University of Oxford as a PhD student with Prof. Andrew Zisserman|
