MSc(Engg) Student, Machine Learning Lab, Department of Computer Science & Automation, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore



I am a second-year MSc(Engg) student in Computer Science at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, working with Prof. Chiranjib Bhattacharyya. Prior to joining IISc, I completed my B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering from Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College, Ghaziabad affiliated to Uttar Pradesh Technical University.

My research interests broadly lie in the areas of Machine Learning and Optimization. I am working on Approximate Bayesian Inference for Big data.


Adapting MCMC for Big Data

MSc(Engg) Project
Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods have been the preferred choice of sampling while approximating the posterior in the Bayesian Learning framework. When the number of data-points is very large, the complexity of each Metropolis-Hastings step is proportional to the number of data-points. We are developing algorithms adhering to the Bias-Variance tradeoff principle to tame this complexity.

Artificial Intelligence Toolkit

B.Tech Major Project
A software which is a Windows Application that included several AI algorithms like searching, classification and clustering in a demonstrative way to be used as a learning toolkit for college students in labs. It is a Windows Form Application in .NET framework 3.5 coded using Microsoft Visual C#.
Collaborators: Ajay Garg, Ashish Kumar Sen, Shivam Mishra, Anurag Shukla
