About Me

I am a PhD student at the Image Analysis and Biometrics Lab, IIIT-Delhi, under Dr. Mayank Vatsa and Dr. Richa Singh. My research is supported via the TCS PhD fellowship. Currently, I am also serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Biomtrics Council Newsletter.

My area of research revolves around machine learning and deep learning with application to face recognition. I am also interested in the area of Ethics in AI, fairness and bias of AI. I am a part of the team awarded Facebook's Ethics in AI research award, 2019 for our research on "Mitigating Bias in Face Recognition For Vast Regional Diversity in India".

Recently, I received the Google's student travel scholarship to attend Grace Hopper Celebration 2019, being held at Orlando, USA. I was awarded the Women Techmakers Scholarship (APAC) (APAC) in 2018. During my PhD, I was a visiting scholar at West Virginia University, USA under Dr. Afzel Noore from October 2016 - June 2017. Prior to this, I completed my Bachelors of Technology (CSE) from IIIT-Delhi (2015).

You can also find me on Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter.
