I am a Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) where I work on Computer Vision and Machine Learning. My research interest is in reducing the need for supervision in visual learning. I finished my PhD at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Martial Hebert and Abhinav Gupta. My PhD Thesis was titled “Visual Learning with Minimal Human Supervision” for which I received the SCS Distinguished Dissertation Award (Runner Up) 2018.
