I am a PhD Candidate working with Prof. Klaus Mueller in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University. I love crunching numbers & developing interactive systems to tackle high impact social problems. Recently, I was awarded with IACS Junior researcher Award for my upcoming research on tackling Algorithmic Bias through human centered AI. Last year, I was awarded with Bloomberg Immersion fellowship. As a part of the fellowship, I worked with a non-profit, Matriculate, and built a real time dashboard to enhance their decision making. As Data Science for Social Good fellow at Georgia Tech, I got the opportunity to work with Prof. Ellen Zegura. I and my team tried to counter housing injustice by analysing Atlanta’s anti-displacement policy & communicating its possible impacts. I also worked as a research intern at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi where I tried to predict solar radiation to ensure power supply-demand equilibrium. Previously, I completed my Bachelor’s & Masters in Information Technology from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Gwalior. For my master’s thesis, I worked on ensemble learning and recommender systems under the guidance of Prof. Anupam Shukla. I am also the recipient of Chairman Fellowship Award from Stony Brook University (2016).
