For my thesis research, I have been exploring ideas around interactive reconstruction and modeling of indoor spaces with mobile devices while in-situ, with the goal of creating useful 3D models in real-time. I also have a keen interest in entrepreneurship and exploring the commercial applications of my research.

I'm originally from New Delhi, India. In my spare time, I love to play music, travel, ride my motorcycle (s) and climb mountains. I have had the pleasure of climbing several mountains in the Pacific Northwest with a great group of people from The Mountaineers. Some of my favorite trip memories are below (Photos by Ida Vincent, Svet Kolev and me):
