My research interests include computer vision (especially 3D!) and robust vision-language models. I am also highly interested to work on causality, explainability and visualisations of neural nets. The goal of my research is to develop useful systems that work for the right reasons!

Currently, I live in West Bengal, India, being a undergradute student at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in the Department of Computer Science. I am working on an attention-transfer mechanism for Visual Question Answering (VQA) systems, supervised by Prof. Abir Das. During my internship at the Wadhwani Institute of Artificial Intelligence, I worked on self-supervised 3D human reconstruction from videos. I am also a member of the software and AI team at the Autonomous Ground Vehicle Research Group, IIT Kharagpur, where I am leading research on multimodal trajectory prediction.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.
