I am a final-year PhD student in the Informatics Institute at University of Amsterdam under the supervision of Shimon Whiteson. My research interests lie in the field of machine learning and statistics. I am interested in developing new methods and algorithms that are computationally efficient and enable an agent to behave intelligently to accomplish certain tasks.
Currently, I am working on decision-theoretic planning for resource allocation in multi-sensor networks. My other interests include bandit problems, learning and planning in MDPs, combinatorial optimization and general application of AI in the field of robotics.Before starting my Phd program, I worked as a senior developer at Capital One Labs. I recieved a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 2012. I interned with eBay during the summer of 2011. Before that, I received a Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics Engineering from VNIT, Nagpur in 2010.
