Graduate Researcher and Assistant Director of LIVE

Laboratory for Image and Video Engineering (LIVE) at the University of Texas at Austin

I am a PhD student at the Laboratory for Image and Video Engineering at UT Austin, where I have also been serving as the Assistant Director since 2020. My advisor is Professor Alan Bovik. My research interests include video quality assessment, deep learning, and video processing. I received my B.Tech. from IIT Kharagpur, where I was awarded the Nilanjan Ganguly Memorial Award for the best undergraduate thesis and had the 3rd highest GPA in my graduating batch. My recent work has focused on video quality assessment for livestreamed high-motion videos, and I am currently working on quality assessment for HDR video. My work is sponsored by Amazon Prime Video.

Being an academic is my vocation, and one that I enjoy immensely. I play the keyboard and the guitar occasionally. I love reading theology, history, philosophy, listening to music that stirs the soul, and getting to travel and experience different cultures and cuisines .
