I am a fifth year PhD student in the CS department at the Intelligent Visual Interfaces lab in Rutgers University . I work on Multi-modal A.I., under the supervision of Dr. Mubbasir Kapadia and Dr. Gerard De Melo. Particularly, I am interested in joint understanding of images/videos and abstract/narrative text with applications to multimodal story comprehension. More specifically, it involves developing neural network models to learn various factors that govern multimodal story comprehension and evaluating on tasks such as story illustration, visual storytelling, image captioning and text-to-image retreival/generation. I previously worked on authenticating visual media content such as videos and images using passive image analysis techniques and Machine Learning.
