I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Electrical and Computer Engineering
department of Rice University. I am working under the supervision of
Prof. Ashok Veeraraghavan in the Computational Camera Design lab. Before coming to Rice University, I did my
Phd in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at University of
Maryland, College Park under the supervision of Prof. Rama Chellappa.
My areas of research interests are in computational imaging, computer vision and machine learning. Currently, I
am looking for an academic or research lab position in India or USA.
Traditionally, imaging/camera design and imaging inference (image processing, computer vision) have been
done independently. However, by jointly designing the imaging optics and inference algorithms, we can significantly
enhance the performance of conventional cameras. This is the philosophy behind the fast evolving field of Computational
Imaging (CI). Examples of CI includes light field cameras, extended-depth-of-field cameras, motion deblurring
cameras and so on. My research focuses on the following themes:
Theory for computational imaging
Novel CI systems and processing algorithms
Machine learning for computer vision
Computer vision (Face recognition and SfM)
