About

I am a 3rd year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. My current research with Prof. Chris Bailey-Kellogg, lies at the intersection of Machine Learning and Immunology. Particularly, I am interested in building data-driven computational models that aid in understanding how our bodies respond to pathogens (like flu, HIV etc.), which in turn can help in vaccine design and immunotherapy.

Before joining the PhD program, I was part of the Visual Learning Group at Dartmouth, where I earned my MS in Computer Science under the supervision of Prof. Lorenzo Torresani. Prior to starting my graduate studies in 2012, I had obtained my undergraduate degree in Information Technology from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Gwalior, India.
