Short Bio

I am currently a senior research scientist at NVIDIA, Deep Learning Research.

My vision is transformation of medicine using machine learning. Adoption of AI in medicine however faces challenges such as label scarcity, interpretability, and robustness. The overarching theme of my research is to address these challenges by leveraging tools from statistical signal processing and optimization. I have delivered several contributions to large-scale computational biomedical imaging and sensing using deep generative models; among which I pioneered GANCS for perceptual fast MR imaging.

Before joining NVIDIA, I was a research scientist (and before postdoc) at Information Systems Lab, EE Dept., Stanford University, working with John Pauly, David Donoho, and Shreyas Vasanawala.

Prior to that I was a visiting researcher with RISE Lab, EECS Dept., UC Berkeley working with Michael Mahoney.

I received my Ph.D. in EE and Math (minor) from University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (May 2015), under the supervision of Georgios B. Giannakis. My PhD was devoted to large-scale data science for facilitating machine learning. For contributions to large-scale imputation of streaming data I received the Young Author Best Paper Award from IEEE Signal Processing Society 2017.
