My picture

I am a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst working under the supervision of Prof. Yair Zick. Prior to joining UMass Amherst, I received my undergraduate degree at IIT Kharagpur.

My main research interest is explainable AI. More specifically, I am interested in creating human-centric methods to explain the decisions of complex black box models. I also like to work on problems which involve uncertainty in information and examine the information-efficiency trade-off.
