I am a PhD student in EECS at MIT advised by Prof. Antonio Torralba. My research goal is to understand what can be learnt from rich multimodal interactions (vision, touch and sounds) with objects (and people) in the world around us. I am also interested in developing systems that enable robots to efficiently abstract knowledge across tasks, reason, understand goals and reliably interact in the real world.

At MIT, I am supported by the Great Educators Fellowship.

Prior to this I was at Carnegie Mellon University for a year long research internship advised by Prof. Abhinav Gupta. Even before that I was an undergraduate student at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.

A consolidated list of my research publications is on Google Scholar.

Besides research, I enjoy photography, dancing and cooking (also, eating).
