Hello! I am a master’s student at UBC, Vancouver working on kernel-based representation learning for computer vision applications under the supervision of Dr. D.J. Sutherland.

Before joining UBC, I was a research fellow at Wadhwani AI where I helped develop a visual weighing machine to detect low birth-weight babies in rural India. I am also interested in working towards wildlife conservation and sustainable development for climate change solutions.
