I am a Research Assistant / PhD Student at the iBUG (Intelligent Behaviour Understanding Group) at Imperial College London. I am supervised by Prof. Maja Pantic, and work closely with Dr. Stavros Petridis.
I am working in the areas of computer vision, multimodal machine learning and affective computing. I am specifically interested in making contributions to the automatic analysis of human behaviour using self-supervised deep learning methods.
I completed my Bachelors (Honours) and Masters by Research in Computer Science from IIIT Hyderabad in 2017 and 2018 respectively. I finished my thesis, “Multimodal Emotion Recognition from Advertisements with Application to Computational Advertising” advised by Dr. Ramanathan Subramanian at the Center for Visual Information Technology. I was also a visiting researcher at the SeSaMe Centre at the National University of Singapore from Sept 2017 - May 2018.
