I am currently a Research Scientist at OpenAI. Starting fall 2018, I will be an assistant professor in the Computer Science department at Princeton university. I received my PhD from MIT, advised by Prof. Regina Barzilay, and was a member of CSAIL and the MIT NLP group.
My research interests are in language grounding and deep reinforcement learning. My goal is to build intelligent agents that learn to handle the dynamics of the world through experience and existing human knowledge
Previously, I obtained a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Madras in 2012.
