Work Experience

Research Intern

US Army Research Laboratory

Advisor : Dr. Nicholas Waytowich

Developed a system for training reinforcement learning agents using video demonstrations and human feedback.

Research Assistant

Coral Lab, University of Maryland Baltimore County

Advisor : Dr. Tim Oates

Developed Symbolic Trajectory Analysis and VIsualization System (STAVIS), a system analysis of trajectories using grammar induction algorithm and SAX representation. Also worked on project for noticing changes in the utility oflearned knowledge as detecting changes in streaming data. This will be helpful in monitoring performance of neural machine learning algorithms.

Research Intern

Xerox Research Center Europe, France

Advisor : Dr. Matthias Galle

Worked on inferring templates in documents using grammar induction algorithms. We used document classification as evaluation metric for usefulness of grammar learnt from documents.
