I am an AI Resident at FAIR (Meta AI) where I am exploring ideas to improve systematic generalization of Reinforcement Learning agents with Roberta Raileanu and Tim Rocktäschel. Previously, I spent a wonderful year at Carnegie Mellon University writing my undergraduate thesis under Katerina Fragkiadaki on topics in 3D Computer Vision and Language Grounding. I recently completed my undergraduate studies at BITS Pilani, majoring in Computer Science.
