I am a first year graduate student at the School of Information, UT Austin pursuing my MS in Information Studies. I am interested in exploring the relationship between technology and society through the research areas of Computational Social Science, Tech/AI for Social Good and Ethical AI.

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, India with a degree in Materials Engineering in 2020 and then worked as a data scientist for two years prior to joining UT Austin. I am very enthusiastic about volunteering for Data Science for Social Good initiatives, and have been a collaborator for both Datakind and Omdena AI in the past.

Outside of work I am a huge sports buff, regularly following Football, Snooker, F1, Golf, NBA, Tennis and Cricket. Compelling unscripted drama in sport and Indian sweets are my biggest weaknesses!

Using AI to Monitor Deforestation

School of Information, UT Austin

Creating an AI based solution to remotely monitor deforestation in the Amazon using satellite imagery. Proposed solution involves using CNNs to extract features from satellite images that can be used as indicators of deforestation

Identification of Prominent Researchers using Co‑Authorship Networks

Self-supervised Project

Creation of a social network of AI researchers to analyze the collaboration patterns and identify the prominent researchers in the field. Data was mined from arXiv followed by network analysis in Python via NetworkX to identify influential nodes by using network centrality measures.
