Bio

I am a 5th Year Ph.D Candidate at Department of Computer Science, Dartmouth College. I am being advised by Dr. Lorenzo Torresani and am a member of the Visual Learning Group( VLG ). I completed my undergradute in Computer Science from School of Science and Engineering, Lahore University of Management Sciences , Lahore, Pakistan.

My research focuses on the development and application of machine learning algorithms. I am greatly interested in improving methods for performing pixel-level prediction (depth estimation, semantic segmentation, surface normal estimation, image colorization, image inpainting). My current work focuses on the development of new methods for improving image understanding with the aim of applying it to generative modeling of images and improving performance on compression. I am also interested in applying my work to improving voxel-level understanding on videos.
