I am an incoming Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida. Prior to this, I received my PhD in Computer Science from UC Davis in September 2023, advised by Prasant Mohapatra. My research primarily focuses on improving Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) models to further facilitate their adoption into society by analyzing and improving model safety with respect to security, robustness, and fairness. I also work to translate these ideas to impact real-world models deployed in production systems, which by default are closed-source. Previously, I have also worked on developing ML approaches for improving networked systems.
