About Me

I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and a Google PhD Fellow. My PhD advisor is Dr. Manik Varma. I completed my bachelor's and master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in the year 2012.
My thesis research is on Extreme Multi-label Learning where the objective is to learn a classifier that can automatically tag a datapoint with the most relevant subset of labels from an extremely large label set. On application side, I apply extreme classification algorithms to solve tagging, ranking and recommendation problems. Apart from algorithm development, I also work on designing suitable loss functions for these problems.

    The Extreme Classification Repository

    This repository provides benchmark multi-label datasets and code that can be used for evaluating the performance of extreme multi-label algorithms. It also provides comparative results of various algorithms on all the benchmark datasets.


    Personal

    I love trekking, and aim to go for atleast 2 treks per year but as is usually the case, haven't been able to manage that :(
    So far I have been to the following treks:

    • Chadar Trek to Lingshed (3900 m): Checkout the trek video
    • Pin Parvati Pass (5300 m): Checkout the trek video
    • Rupin Pass (4650 m)
    • Lamayuru - Hemis Shukpachan Trek (3500 m)
    • Sandakphu (3600 m)
    • Small treks around pune
