I am a PhD student in the CS department (since Sep 2016) at the Intelligent Visual Interfaces lab in Rutgers University working on Multi-modal A.I., under the supervision of Dr. Mubbasir Kapadia and Dr. Gerard De Melo. Particularly, I work on joint understanding of images/videos with abstract and narrative text with applications to story illustration, visual storytelling, image captioning and image retrieval. I previously worked on authenticating multimedia content such as videos and images using passive image analysis techniques and Machine Learning.
