I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UC San Diego jointly advised by Professor Julian McAuley and Professor Shlomo Dubnov. I am currently working on machine learning for audio signal processing and also exploring vulnerabilities in neural network based sequence models. I received my undergraduate (B. Tech) degree in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee in 2017.

Besides my research, I lead the software engineering team at Blue Water Trade Winds. We provide software solutions to shipping companies for voyage management and optimization. Our services ( BOSS and CHM ) help optimize fuel consumption through voyage planning and monitoring.
