About me

I am pursuing my Doctor of Philosophy degree at the School of Computer Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, since August 2012, under the supervision of Dr. Chi-Wing Fu and Dr. Jianmin ZhengPreviously, I worked at Tata Consultancy Services in Chennai, India for about three years. I received my B.Tech degree in Information Technology from Anna University, Chennai, India in 2009.

My broad research interests lie at the intersection of computer graphics, computer vision, and numerical optimization. More specifically, I am currently focusing on sketch understanding, 2.5D modeling, 2D-3D reconstruction, HCI and shape analysis.
