Hello! I am a second year PhD student in the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab at UC Berkeley advised by Prof. Sergey Levine. My research interests lie in the field of Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning. My research goal is to develop agents that can learn via interaction, reliably, and robustly in the real world. Towards this goal, I am interested in devising algorithms which allow learning complex behavior by effectively leveraging previously collected static datasets (offline data-driven RL) and at the same also understanding and addressing challenges in applying RL with deep neural network function approximation.
I previously interned at the Google Brain Team, Toronto during Summer 2017 and Summer 2018 where I was fortunate to work with Geoffrey Hinton, Kevin Swersky and Jimmy Ba on a variety of topics including Hierarchical RL, relational learning and generative modelling.
I graduated from Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay, India with a Bachelor of Technology in August 2018. I was advised by Prof. Sunita Sarawagi. I worked on calibration of neural networks as a part of my Bachelor’s thesis.
