I am a 32 year old researcher, beer lover and a wannabe artist. And this website is wildly outdated in terms of content.
I am currently the CEO and Co-founder of AIcrowd, a platform for organising machine learning challenges on a variety of problems in OpenScience using OpenData. The vision is to enable Scientists from multiple domains to crowdsource machine learning expertise; and in the process also facilitate the grooming of machine learning expertise in a coopetitive environment.
I was previously working as a PhD student at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland working on a diversity of problems in Applied Machine Learning from detection of Plant Diseases from images of Plant leaves to teaching musculoskeletal models how to walk using reinforcement learning.
Before that, I did my bachelors in Computer Science and Masters by Research in Computational Linguistics at IIIT Hyderabad. I spent the last few years at CERN, Geneva first as a Summer Student with the EF-SFT, CERN and then as a Visiting Scientist at Theoretical Physics Department, CERN. I also had a brief stint working with UNITAR-UNOSAT working as a lead developer for GeoTag-X.
I excessively love beer, puzzles, travelling, partying and of course blabbering :D
A wannabe music composer, I keep fiddling with my Guitar whenever I find time. I have also been trying to learn Tabla and Bansuri; the progress on that front has not been very impressive, but I still keep trying :D
