I am currently a graduate research assistant at Networked Robotics and Sensing Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Shahram Payandeh at Simon Fraser University, Canada. My work revolves around intersection of computer vision and machine learning. I am working on problem of semi-supervised tracking using RGB and depth images for a mobile robot. We explore attention-based trackers (deep learning) and correlation filter-based trackers (non-deep learning). Attention-based models provided high accuracy, but offline training is a bottleneck. On the other hand, correlation filter-based trackers provided the ability to learn on the fly at high FPS which suite our purpose, hence form a major part of my research.
In past, I have been a part of Helicopter and VTOL Laboratory, IIT Kanpur (supervised by Prof. Abhishek), Samsung IoT Innovation Lab, IIT Delhi (supervised by Prof. Brejesh Lall) and Applied Cognitive Science Lab, IIT Mandi (supervised by Prof. Varun Dutt).
I was lately an intern at UrtheCast where I was responsible for developing computationally intensive image processing algorithms for large scale satellite data within a cloud-based infrastructure using deep learning.
Over the course of my work experience, I have developed excellent skills in PyTorch, TensorFlow, Python, MATLAB, Numpy, Scipy, OpenCV, Matplotlib, GDAL, etc. scientific stack as well as cloud services like AWS.
I am an active member of developer community groups of Vancouver where I run Women in Machine Learning and Data Science meetup and Google Developers Group. As a strong proponent of tech and diversity, my involvement goes beyond local community work. In past, I have been one of the the chairs of Women in Computer Vision workshop co-hosted with CVPR, 2020 and was on the committe of the Women in Machine Learning workshop, 2019. I am currently an advisor for the Women in Computer Vision workshop, 2021 to be co-hosted with CVPR, 2021.
If you have questions about any of my work, feel free to reach out to me via email. I’ll be happy to chat!
