IIT Roorkee

I'm an Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee alumnus, passionate about Open Source and Machine Learning Research. My research interests include Natural Language Processing and Graph Representation Learning.

Currently, I work as an Applied Scientist at AWS AI, Berlin. Previously, in 2020, I interned with the Machine Learning University and the Deep Graphs teams at AWS.

In the summer of 2020, I worked on Speaker Diarization and Bad Audio Detection as a Machine Learning Intern in the Speech team at

In the summers of 2018 & 19, I was a visiting researcher at MALL Lab, IISc Bangalore working on Graph Neural Networks and Natural Language Processing under the guidance of Prof. Partha P. Talukdar.

Open source

I maintain and contribute to a number of open source projects (see github). Currently, I'm working on PyTorch and SciPy. I'm a maintainer and PyTorch Framework Adaptation Author of the book Dive Into Deep Learning.

In the summer of 2021, I interned as an open-source software developer at Quansight Labs working on Array Libraries Interoperability. I was fortunate to work under the amazing mentorship of Ralf Gommers who I cannot thank enough. Read more about my project.

I served as a mentor for CERN-HSF as part of Google Summer of Code 2021. In the 2020 edition of the program, I worked as a GSoC student for the same org. I developed the PyTorch Interface for ROOT-TMVA, a framework for High Energy Physics data analysis. Read more.
