I am a graduate student at the Dept. of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Delaware. I am doing my research at the VIMS Laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Chandra Kambhamettu. Previously, I worked as an IT Consultant at Oracle India Private Limited (2012-2016) and did my Masters in Computer Science at Syracuse University, New York (2018).

My research interests are Point cloud Classification, and Geometry Processing.
