I obtained a PhD under the joint supervision of Cordelia Schmid (LEAR now THOTH team, INRIA Grenoble) and Frederic Jurie (GREYC, CNRS UMR 6072, University of Caen) and an Integrated Master of Technology in Mathematics
and Computing in 2008 from the Indian Institute
of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), India.
I was, prior to my PhD, a Senior Engineer at the Technology
Planning Group of Samsung R&D India and, after my PhD, a Researcher in the Exploratory
Research Group of Technicolor
R&I, France and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the
Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Germany.
My Erdős number is
at most 4 (G. Sharma - J. B. Srivastava - A. N. Alahmadi - C. Thomassen - P. Erdős).
Research interests: Computer Vision
and Machine Learning.
Internships/visits etc.: I do not have any intern positions at the moment (for
current semester or the summers). Please do not contact me, unless a position is explicitly
advertised. I will not be able to reply to every mail.
New work on Large Scale 3D Novel Object Discovery on publications page or on arXiv.
New work on AdaScan (Adaptive Scan) pooling network for Human Action Recognition in videos on publications page or on
We extended our CVPR 2016 work on Latent Ordinal Model for the task of Human Action Recognition in
Videos obtaining very good results. An arXiv preprint
and a project page is online now.
