I am a Ph.D. student working with the Center for Research in Computer Vision (CRCV) lab under the mentorship of Prof. Mubarak Shah at the University of Central Florida (UCF). My core areas of interest have been Computer Vision problems on segmentation, tracking (2D/3D), and point clouds, using attention and transformer-based deep learning methodologies.

As a part of my research experience with the CRCV lab, I had the opportunity to mentor incoming students in the NSF-Funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program. Additionally, as a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA), I have conducted programming labs for undergraduate students. Also, I have provided periodic assistance with maintaining the CRCV website.
