I am a Research Fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I work with Prateek Jain and Harsha Simhadri in the Machine Learning and Optimisation (MLO) group and Intelligent Devices Expedition group. I do research on theoretically sound and practical ML algorithms that can bring state-of-the-art machine learning to severely resource-constrained devices. As concrete examples,
Prior to joining Microsoft Research, I did my undergraduate at IIT Patna, with my thesis work supervised by Dr. Arijit Mondal. My current focus is primarily academic, but I strongly feel about the impact cutting-edge technology can have for social good. During our undergraduate years, Rito, Karan, Prashant and I failed at scaling up Weave; a venture focused on creating micro-entrepreneurs in a marginalized weaver community.
The Weave journey somewhere along the line transformed into a new venture, rooting for healthcare access and affordability, using deep learning for diagnostics at ChironX. I continue to actively collaborate with Rito and Prashant at ChironX on designing their deep learning solutions and architectures.
