About

I am currently a research engineer at the Machine Learning Group working on NAS under the supervision of Prof Frank Hutter. Before this, I was at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at UCL working on bioplausible learning for neural networks under the joint supervision of Prof Peter Latham and Timothy Lillicrap (DeepMind). For a brief stint in between, I was a research intern at Huawei R&D London, working on NAS for the task of low light image denoising. I also briefly worked at Amazon as a software developer, where I copy-pasted tons of stuff from StackOverflow. I did my research thesis on deep learning-based personality detection at NTU Singapore under the supervision of Prof Erik Cambria.

Research Interests

I am interested in all facets of deep learning, but currently focusing on Neural Architecture Search and applications to various domains (e.g. NLP).
