I am currently working with Prof. Brenden Lake at the Human & Machine Learning Lab on learning simple inductive biases with neural networks. I am a Master's Student at NYU and have recieved the Samuel Morse Fellowship. I have completed my undergraduate from IIT Kanpur majoring in Electrical Engineering. I am broadly interested in using concepts like compositionality, causality and learning to learn to advance current AI systems. During my time as an undergraduate I worked with Prof. Yao Wang from NYU on a couple of projects and had the fortune of visiting New York to work with her. During my master's, I enjoyed a stirring summer in Boston at PathAI, an computational pathology startup.
I am interested in playing tennis, visiting museums, writing poetry and painting.

New York University
B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering, 2018
Children use the mutual exclusivity (ME) bias to learn new words, while standard neural nets show the opposite bias, hindering learning in naturalistic scenarios such as lifelong learning.
