I'm currently a Research Scholar at Cohere for AI working on the Aya Project. Previously, I led ML and AI at aiara. I was a Machine Learning Scientist with Amazon Development Centre, Scotland. At Amazon, I worked in Display Advertising, which involved world-scale data systems, and deep learning models operating at low latencies. I completed my Master's in Artificial Intelligence at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. I specialized in Machine Learning with my thesis - "Investigating Adversarially learned representations to achieve Fairness in Image classification". Prior to my MSc, I graduated with a Bachelor's in Engineering majoring in Information Technology from CBIT, Osmania University.

I love photography. The other passion being Golf. I now shoot in the high 70s. I'm an ardent Manchester United supporter. Being an Indian, loving cricket is in my genes. I love reading. My current favorite author is Brandon Sanderson. My current favorite non-ML subject is nueroscience and learning about the brain. Other stuff that holds my interest: how humans learn, spaced repetition, and meta-science.

Check out my blog. I was a contributing author at Skynet Today - a site dedicated to providing accessible and informed written critique of the AI news and trends.
