I am a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research, New York.
I received my PhD in computer science from Cornell University (2019) and my
bachelors in computer science from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (2013).
My main interest is in developing provable and practically efficient algorithms with
application to real-life problems. My empirical focus is on problems in
natural language understanding and allied fields. I am
currently active in reinforcement learning theory, interactive learning, and language and vision problems.
News: We have a new reinforcement learning algorithm HOMER, with theoretical guarantees on
problems with high-dimensional observations that do not depend on the size of observation space. See our
We are hiring!

Opinion: ICLR 2020 is going virtual and that is a good thing. Virtual conferences are actually better! My post.
