I am an Applied Scientist at Microsoft Research India. My research interests include Machine Learning and Computer Vision. Specifically, I am interested in distributed and large scale Machine Learning and its application to real world problems in different domains (like computer vision).

Before joining MSR, I was a Research Scientist at Yahoo Research Bangalore from September 2009 to June 2012. I completed my Ph.D. from the Computer Science Department at Columbia University in 2009. My thesis advisors were Prof. Ravi Ramamoorthi and Prof. Peter Belhumeur. I did my Masters in CS from Columbia University in 2006 and undergrad. in Computer Science from Indian Institute Of Technology Delhi (IIT-Delhi) in 2004.


Chih-Jen Lin (Professor, National Taiwan University), Dhruv Mahajan (MSR India)  and Vikas Sindhwani (IBM Research, Watson) are organizing a Mysore Park workshop on  "Distributed Computing For Machine Learning and Optimization" from 18th December to 20th December 2013.
