I'm a Ph.D. student in the Cornell University Computer Science Department (Ithaca campus). My research interest is in Machine Learning and Computer Vision, with a focus on few-shot visual understanding. Since high-quality training data for a given task may not always be readily available, I believe it is important to understand how neural models generalize and adapt to new domains from partially relevant data or indirect supervision.

Bharath Hariharan is my advisor.
