I am an associate professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Computer Science^, University of Massachusetts, Amherst^. I worked with Prof. Andrew G. Barto on an algebraic framework for abstraction in Reinforcement Learning.

My current research interests span the broader area of machine learning, ranging from Spatio-temporal Abstractions in Reinforcement Learning to social network analysis and Data/Text Mining. Much of the work in my group is directed toward understanding interactions and learning from them.
