I am a King's India scholar and a Ph.D. candidate at King's College London. I am working towards my Ph.D. in computer science at department of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, King's college, under the guidance of Dr. Nishanth Sastry. My primary interests are complex networks and their emergent behaviours. I am also interested in understanding complex structures in human interactions and in social media, using representation learning. My current projects deal with affective analysis of images, engagement analysis in social media and notions of support in complex networks.

This work looks into the concept of micro-videos and tries to probe user engagement patters using data driven analysis. The first iteration of the work was published in SocInfo 2017. The preprint version can be read here
I am currently working with datasets of medical support communities online. I am interested in understanding the signatures of help and support for users in distress, quantified using latest representational learning techniques. This project is in collaboration with the Blizzard Institute at Queen Mary University of London and IoPPN at King's College
This is an ongoing project with Bell Labs, Cambridge UK, where I am working on problems pertaining to explainbility in deep learning. I am particularly dealing with learning problems pertaining to intangible properties like Beauty, liviliness, Depression etc. The use case is related to urban scenes and urban ambiance. The applications are pertaining to urban planning and urban activism.
