I am a PhD Student at Computer Science and Engineering department of IIT Delhi. I am fortunate and grateful to be advised by Dr. Parag Singla and Dr. Mausam . My primary research interests are Artificial Intelligence Planning, Reinforcement Learning and Probabilistic Graphical Models.

In the past, I have worked in the area of Cloud Systems with Dr. J.Lakshmi and Prof S.K. Nandy during my M.Tech at Department of Computational and Data Sciences (Formerly part of Super-computer Education and Research Centre), Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I did my Bachelors from Punjab Engineering College (PEC), Chandigarh
