I'm a PhD Candidate at the Research Centre for Machine Learning at City University of London working in the domain of Neuro-symbolic AI focusing on sequential modeling and abstract relational learning. My research supervisors are Dr. Tillman Weyde and Dr. Artur Garcez.

My research interests span across abstract pattern learning, music information retrieval, systematicity and compositionality of deep neural networks.

Prior to joining here, I finished my Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science from IIIT-Hyderabad, India.
