I work on computer vision and machine learning. I am particularly interested in developing data-efficient and compute-efficient models
by leveraging optimization methods, probabilistic graphical models, semi-supervised learning, generative AI etc.

I am looking for fully funded PhD students. Send me your cv and transcript if you are interested!
I am also looking for visiting students!
