I was born in Hyderabad, India but I grew up in two quite opposite places (weather-wise); Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (from K.G. to 5th Std) and Ibra, Oman (5th to 10th Std).
I have always loved stories and thought of myself as a storyteller.
After my frivolous attempt at JEE, I joined Vellore Institute of Technology to learn and tell stories about Computer Science and Engineering.
During my Masters at Arizona State University, I realized that rigorously formalized ideas are the best stories to tell!
Hence I opted to pursue PhD under Prof. Subbarao Kambhampati. My research interests lie in the area of Human in the loop AI and Reinforcement Learning.
In my free time, I write screenplays, dance, learn photography, play my keyboard and listen to a wide variety of music ranging from heavy metal to carnatic ragas.
