Computer Vision

I am a PhD student at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany, supervised by Dr. Michael Black and Dr. Dimitris Tzionas since October 2021. Earlier, I worked as a Research Assistant in the same group for a year. I am interested in the understanding of human motion and it’s interaction with the environment.

Previously, I worked as a Computer Vision Researcher at Mercedes-Benz R&D India where I worked with Dr. Arjun Jain on human pose estimation for Intelligent Interior. I developed a novel real-time headpose estimation algorithm from a single monocular IR camera which was later deployed as Side Mirror Selection feature in Mercedes EQS 2021 and Rear Sunblind Control feature in Mercedes S-Class 2021.

Prior to that, I worked in the Computer Vision Group at Intel Corporation for developing deep learning algorithms for edge devices. I completed my Masters in Computer Science at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela under the supervision of Dr. Ratnakar Dash.
