Hi everyone!! I am a 2nd year PhD student in the ML Foundations group at Harvard, advised by Boaz Barak and Sham Kakade. I am broadly interested in optimization and generalization related aspects of deep learning. In particular, I am excited about understanding the inductive bias of various optimization algorithms in deep learning. Previously, I completed my Masters from IIT Madras under the guidance of Harish Guruprasad, where we worked on understanding the implications of weight normalization. I have also spent an year as a Research Associate at Google Research India, working with Praneeth Netrapalli and Prateek Jain on exploring the simplicity bias induced by gradient descent.
