I am

a PhD student under Prof. C. V Jawahar at IIIT Hyderabad. My PhD is partly funded by TCS through the TCS Research fellowship Scheme 2016. I joined the Phd Program in 2015 after completing MS by Research [2013-2015] in Computer Science under Prof. Jawahar’s guidance. Prior to joining IIIT Hyderabad, I had obtained my undergraduate degree in Btech Computer Science Engineering from NIT Warangal [2005-2009] and worked with S&P Global Market Intelligence as a Business Analyst .

My research is in the field of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Specifically, I look into the problems of OCR in Indian languages, Scene text understanding and Document Visual Question Answering (DocVQA)
