Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am actively looking for PhD students who are interested in working on computer vision and deep learning problems such as, adversarial robustness, learning from imbalanced data, learning with limited supervision, incremental learning, and large scale zero shot object detection. Please contact me, if you are interested. Onshore students will be preferred due to current travel restrictions.


Research activity per year

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
