About Me

I am a PhD student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University advised by Abhinav Gupta.
In the past, I have worked on various problems in computer vision including self-supervised representation learning, few-shot & zero-shot learning, object detection, semantic segmentation, visual physics modeling and more recently, 3D modeling via audio-visual cues. Checkout my projects below!
