Biography

I am a second year DPhil (PhD) student in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, advised by Professor Philip Torr in the Torr Vision Group and Professor Yarin Gal in Oxford Applied and Theoretical Machine Learning Group. I am also closely supervised by Dr. Puneet Dokania. I obtained my Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India and completed my Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science from the University of Oxford.

My current research focuses on uncertainty quantification in deep neural networks using Bayesian and non-Bayesian approaches in a scalable, computationally light-weight manner with applications in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.
