Computer Vision and Image Encryption Researcher

Cognitive Applications Research Lab (CARL)

SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRM IST)


Currently in my senior year, I’m pursuing Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering at SRM IST. I’m excited to learn about how machines work and explain the rationale behind their decisions. My research interests include Machine Learning, Expert Systems, Image Encryption and Explainable AI.

I’m also dedicated to teaching and mentoring. I’ve served as a Google ExploreML Facilitator and impacted 1k+ students and faculties through it. I also founded Cognitive Applications Research Lab, to ease the learning curve of students getting into research. I currently lead CARL and head the RnD domain at IEEE SRM.

Outside academia, I love travel, music, reading and meeting new people!
