I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Indian Institute of Science Bangalore. Here, I am hosted by Dr. Partha Pratim Talukdar and Dr. Venkatesh Babu at Machine and Langauge Learning (MALL) lab. Prior to this, I worked under supervision of Prof. C. V. Jawahar and Dr. Karteek Alahari for my PhD dissertation on scene text understanding at IIIT Hyderabad. At IIIT, I was a reciptent of Microsoft Research India PhD fellowship 2012 and XRCI best doctoral dissertation award: first runner up 2015.

My current research interest spans Computer Vision and Knowledge Graphs. To be specific, I focus on using structured knoweledge bases for addressing various Computer Vision tasks.

Prior to joining IIIT-H for my PhD, I obtained my master's degree from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra and undergraduate degree from Guru Ghashidas university Bilaspur (now a central university).
