I am a Research Scientist at Google Brain, working broadly in the area of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Among many other topics, I am particularly interested in the problem of learning with limited supervision via invariant/disentangled representations, self-supervision, semi-supervised and transfer learning, deep generative models (implicit and explicit), few-shot learning leveraging multiple tasks, universal representations, injecting external/auxiliary knowledge, etc. I am also highly interested in machine learning for computer vision and natural language processing problems.

Before Google, I was at IBM TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY. I graduated with a Ph.D. from Department of Computer Science at University of Maryland in 2013 where my advisor was Hal Daumé III. I have also worked on robust automatic speech recognition during my Masters at CRSS, advised by John H. L. Hansen.
