I am a Senior Lecturer of Computing Science at University of Glasgow (UofG), where I am a member of the Social AI group with the GIST research section. I also hold an Honorary Associate Professor position in the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick.
My research focuses on developing AI capabilities to understand human behaviour combining Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and Signal/Speech Processing.
I received my PhD in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver in 2013. After graduation, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at SAIL, University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles. In 2015, I joined IIT Kanpur, India as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. In 2018, I moved to University of Warwick as an Assistant Professor, and later became an Associate Professor. Since 2021, I am a Senior Lecturer at the UofG.
I am fortunate to have received several awards for research, teaching, and service to the broader research community. I am a Senior Member of IEEE and an elected member of IEEE MMSP Technical Committee and IEEE MSA Technical Committee.
