University of Washington Tacoma


I am a third year PhD student at University of Washington Tacoma (UWT). I joined the program at University of Washington Tacoma in 2019 and completed a Masters thesis on privacy-preserving video classification in 2020 that was nominated for the UW Distinguished Thesis award. I then took a one year break and briefly worked as a Research Intern at MILA under the supervision of Dr. Golnoosh Farnadi. Prior to starting at UWT, I spent a few years in the Nuclear Power Generation industry as an IT administrator after receiving my Bachelors from JawaharLal Nehru Technological University Anantapur.
