About Me

I am an incoming Ph.D. student in Intelligent Systems at the University of Pittsburgh, advised by Prof. Kayhan Batmanghelich. Prior to that, I received my M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Florida, USA, advised by Prof. Mattia Prosperi. I also worked closely with Prof. Kevin Butler as a Graduate Research Assistant in Florida Institute of Cybersecurity (FICS) Research. Before that, I received my B.Tech degree from Institute of Engineering and Management, Kolkata under the affiliation of West Bengal University of Technology, India.

Along with this, I have 6+ years of experience in the IT/Software Service/Product industry as a Full Stack developer across Lexmark International India Pvt Ltd and Cognizant Technology Solutions India Pvt Ltd, involved in BIG/Medium scale Development/Enhancement projects.

My research interests lie in Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Causal Inference and their medical applications focusing on basic to advanced architectures of supervised and unsupervised deep neural networks to improve their generalization, and interpretability.
