About Me

I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Computer & Information Science, at University of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Shivani Agarwal. Before coming to Penn, I was a PhD student at CSA department, Indian Institute of Science. I completed masters in computer science and engineering at Indian Institute of Science.

I spent time visiting Prof. David Parkes at Harvard in Fall 2015, working on the problem of multi-task peer prediction.

My research interests broadly lie in the areas of Machine Learning, Learning Theory and Information Elicitation. Recently, I have been working on the problem of consistent surrogate risk minimization using tools from information elicitation.
