We are all trapped between the beautiful blueprints of the most perfect systems and the World that contradicts itself, the World that is "large and contains multitudes"

- Stefan Themerson, The Mystery of the Sardine



I am a fourth year graduate student with Prof. Jitendra Malik in the Vision group at University of California Berkeley. I did my undergraduate at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. I also did an undergraduate internship at Microsoft Research India under Manik Varma. My interests are in Computer Vision and Machine learning.
