About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at NYU where I am jointly advised by Prof. Lakshmi Subramanian and Prof. Srikanth Jagabathula. My research interests are in applying Machine Learning techniques to applications in Operations/Marketing, Crowdsourcing and Human Computation. Specifically, my work aims at designing fast and efficient algorithms with provable guarantees that also demonstrate good practical performance. Prior to NYU, I completed my Bachelor's degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi.

Internships

I spent an amazing summer at eBay New York, where I worked on personalizing similar item recommendations. I spent the summer of 2013 at Google Los Angeles, where I worked on identifying important indicators for Search Ads Quality.
