About me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate at , IIIT-Delhi. I work in the domain of Computer Vision and Deep Learning. I am advised by Dr. Saket Anand. My Ph.D. is supported by Visvesvarya Ph.D. Fellowship. During summer 2019, I was Ph.D. Research Intern at Media Analytics Department of NEC Laboratories America, Inc. I was working with Prof. Manmohan Chandraker, Dr. Quoc-Huy Tran, and Dr. Pan Ji.

Research Interest

I am interested in developing robust methods for low-level geometric scene understanding (e.g SfM/SLAM, multiple-geometric model fitting, image-based 3D modeling) and high-level semantic understanding (e.g image classification, object detection, segmentation). In general, for robust scene understanding, I am interested in developing methods that can handle noise, outliers, and adversarial perturbations. Recently, I focus on the following research topics:
