Hi!

I am a PhD student at the Language Technologies Institute of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests lie in the areas of multimodal machine learning, speech recognition and natural language processing. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Florian Metze and Prof. Alan W. Black.

My research is supported by fellowships from Facebook (2019-2021), Center for Machine Learning and Health (2018-2019), and CMU (2016-2018).

I have interned at Facebook AI (Summer ‘20), Abridge AI (Summer ‘19), and Johns Hopkins Summer Workshops (Summer ‘17 and ‘18). Prior to starting my PhD, I received my master’s degree in Language Technologies from LTI, CMU in 2018 and bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from Pune Institute of Computer Technology in 2016.
