  • I will be on the job market this fall seeking full-time roles starting Summer/Fall 2021. Relevant material will be posted here soon.

  • Cornell Chronicle and Communications of the ACM (CACM) covered a story about our SIGIR 2020 paper Controlling Fairness and Bias in Dynamic Learning-to-Rank.

  • New: Our new work on Building Healthy Recommendation Sequences for Everyone: A Safe Reinforcement Learning Approach has been accepted at FAccTRec workshop at ACM RecSys 2020 to be held from September 22-26, 2020. This is joint work with my collaborators at Google Research.

  • New: Our paper Controlling Fairness and Bias in Dynamic Learning-to-Rank has been awarded the Best Paper Award at the ACM SIGIR 2020 conference that was held virtually.

  • Our new paper Controlling Fairness and Bias in Dynamic Learning-to-Rank has been accepted to ACM SIGIR 2020. This is joint work with Marco Morik, Jessica Hong, Thorsten Joachims.

  • I am very fortunate to be working with Alex Beutel at Google AI on Responsible Recommendation systems research as a Research Intern during the spring.

About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the department of Computer Science at Cornell University advised by Prof. Thorsten Joachims. I am particularly interested in Machine Learning for interactive systems thinking about fairness and accountability aspects of such systems and designing related algorithms. I am also fortunate to have Solon Barocas, Karthik Sridharan and David Mimno on my dissertation committee. During my Ph.D., I have also spent time working in the industry through my internships at Google, Microsoft Research and Facebook.

Before arriving at Cornell, I completed my B.Tech.-M.Tech. dual degree in IIT Kanpur (India) where I worked with Prof. Amitabha Mukerjee. During my undergrad, I also worked with Prof. Carolyn Rosé on studying natural language aspects of collaborative learning agents at Carnegie Mellon University as a summer intern. I spent most of my childhood in the beautiful city of Chandigarh and then spent five wonderful years of my life at IIT Kanpur before moving to Cornell to start my PhD. I love to hike in the nature, go camping and do photography.
