I am a Computer Science PhD candidate at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I work towards research in Machine Learning, Structures and Reputation Systems. My dissertation research operates on learning structures as well as learning within structures from real world systems and datasets. My additional research projects span across Crowdsourcing, HCI, ICTD and Data Science for Social Good. I have published 14 peer-reviewed research papers in the areas of Machine Learning, Data Science and ICTD. I have worked with some of the top tech companies and have published multiple papers and patents with Microsoft Research and eBay.
