I am a PhD student at the College of Information and Computer Sciences, UMass Amherst, where I am advised by David Jensen. My research interests are in causal inference and causal modeling in AI, and their intersections with probabilistic machine learning and reinforcement learning. I am currently working on causal models for reinforcement learning domains that can generalize under changes in the environment, and competence-aware models that can anticipate the effects of such changes.
Before coming to UMass, I worked on clustering algorithms for large hypergraphs at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, where I was advised by Prof. Balaraman Ravindran. I graduated with a B.E in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from SSN College of Engineering, affliated to Anna University.
