I’m a second-year Electronics and Computer Engineering undergraduate student at Thapar University, Patiala, India. I am generally interested in deep learning algorithms for computer vision. I have been involved in the development of projects on Image classification, Semantic segmentation, Instance Segmentation, and Instance Recognition. I love to actively contribute in OpenSource and take part in kaggle competitions.

I have worked as a part-time Research Engineer at a startup Minus Zero where I worked on an autonomous electric car with level 5 autonomy. I was fortunate to spend my winters in 2020 at the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad, where I was supervised by Dr. Mohammed Javed. My research interest includes hand-pose estimation, road segmentation, and scene-text detection.
