About Me

I am currently an incoming graduate student at the University of Toronto where I will be pursuing an M.Sc. in Computer Science.

I am from Ajmer, Rajasthan, India. I had my elementary school education at Mayoor School, Ajmer followed by my high school education at Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School in Kota where I also joined Bansal Classes Pvt. Ltd. for IIT-JEE coaching. I have completed my B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Kanpur.

I am a simple guy who is always ready for experiencing the exciting things life has to offer. I love programming, reading novels and web designing. I am always game for anything mathematically challenging. I play Field Hockey as a right inner or sometimes as a right midfielder and I play a lot of PC games too. I enjoy travelling to new places and like to play new tunes on my synthesizer. To know more about me and the stuff I like to do you can explore this blog or visit my personal website.

My research interests are mainly Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Web and System security. I did a research internship on Machine Learning and Robotics with Prof. Ashutosh Saxena at Cornell University. The project page is at <LINK>. At University of Toronto I will be working with Prof. Ruslan Salakhutdinov and the Machine Learning group.
