I am currently a MS (research) student at the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H), working with Dr Avinash Sharma at Centre for Visual Information Technology (CVIT) lab. Currently, my primary focus is on learning based PBNS (Physics Based Neural Simulation) and geometry processing. I am also exploring neural fields approaches for grasp synthesis with Dr Srinath Sridhar at Brown Visual Computing lab.

In my free time I like to play fingerstyle guitar and Indian bamboo flute. I also like photography and love to convert digital images to digital sketches. ;)
