My work is primarily in the area of Computer Vision and applied Machine Learning. I have broad-ranging research interests and like to work on inter-disciplinary problems involving multi-modal multimedia data (e.g. images,videos, text, audio/speech, eye-tracking data) and disciplines (e.g. Humanities, Graphics, Robotics, Human-Computer Interaction).

For my Ph.D. thesis, I explored the area of visual object category understanding via hand-drawn sketches. My thesis examined novel problems related to analysis and synthesis of sketches and mimicking cognitive processes with sketches as input stimuli.
