I'm a student assistant at Smart Data Analytics (SDA), Bonn.

My research interest is in the areas of Cognitive Science and Machine Learning. I'm particularly interested in Deep Learning, Probabilistic Programming and Spectral Graph Theory.

Currently I'm pursuing MSc. in Computer Science with majors in Intelligent System at The University of Bonn. I've completed my bachelor's in Electronics & Communication from The LNM Institute of Information Technology, Jaipur. My strong technical background and analytical skills have led me to number of projects and internships. I have a wide experience of working with development & application of Machine Learning methods mainly in areas of Vision, Speech, NLP, Bioinformatics & Cognitive Radio Networks.

I'm a very passionate learner, I enjoy reading scientific books and journals. Some of the books which have influenced and shaped my interest:

-Connectionism and the Philosophy of Mind

-Conceptual Spaces the Geometry of Thought

-The Society of Mind

-Surfaces and Essences: Analogy as the Fuel and Fire of Thinking

-Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid

I'm an atheist and a critic of religion. I believe, "Religion is the biggest tragedy in the history of mankind."

I am always looking for opportunities to collaborate and work on a problem with practical and social impact. Please browse around if interested can connect via mail at,
