About me

  • I am a Senior Applied Research Scientist at Cruise where I work for the Prediction AI team. As a Cruise employee, I’m excited to help make commutes in cities safer and less daunting.
  • My research interests span computer vision and machine learning with a focus on object detection and tracking, human activity recognition, driver behavior analysis, and driver safety systems in general. I am also particularly interested in sensor fusion and multi-modal approaches for real time algorithms.
  • I received my Master’s and PhD in Electrical Engineering at UC San Diego where I was advised by Prof. Mohan M. Trivedi. As part of the Laboratory for Intelligent & Safe Automobiles (LISA), I developed unique models/algorithms to enhance driver and vehicle safety. I also oversaw the design, calibration and operation of heavily sensorized vehicular testbeds, as well as real-world data collection and labelling.
  • I received my Bachelor’s in Electronics & Communication Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Silchar in India. My undergraduate research advisor was Prof. Jayasree Chakraborty.
