About Me

I am a first year Ph.D. student in the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) at the Australian National University, where I am fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Liang Zheng and Prof. Stephen Gould.

Previously, I was a research intern at Adobe Research. Prior to that, I had graduated from Masters of Machine learning and Computer Vision with first class honours from the Australian National University. Even earlier, I was working as a machine learning research engineer at Yahoo Japan. I received my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering with specialization in intelligent and cognitive systems from IIT Delhi.

I am currently engaged in exploring a novel approach to interactive image synthesis and editing, by using deep reinforcement learning for understanding human visual user-intention (i.e. what a user wants to draw) from the primitive human inputs (e.g. coarse scribbles). We believe that applications from this research can provide human-users with new ways to better express their inner ideas in direct visual form.
