I am a pre-final year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at UT-Dallas. My advisor is Vibhav Gogate. Before starting my PhD, I was working in the industry as a software engineer.

Broadly, my research interests lie in the fields of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Specifically, I work on probabilistic graphical models (PGMs) and Markov Logic (a first-order extension of PGMs). My goal is to develop fast, scalable and accurate inference/learning algorithms that help solve large, real-world problems.

  • Currently, I am working as a research intern in the BigData Experience Lab at Adobe Sytems, San Jose

  • I am currently looking for academic/research position starting from Fall 2016. My Curriculum Vitae can be found here.

  • Two of my papers on learning graphical models and Markov logic networks are accepted at AAAI 2016. Paper 1 Paper 2

  • My thesis summary is accepted to present at the AAAI-16 Doctoral Consortium.

  • My paper on lifted probabilistic inference is accepted at NIPS 2015
