I am a KTP researcher with affiliation to Oxford Brookes University and Supponor Ltd.
Earlier, I worked as a Postdoctoral researcher with Oxford Brookes University on Smart Autonomous Robotic Assistant Surgeon. I completed my Ph.D. from Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology with a dissertation focusing on human facial expression analysis.
My current research mainly focuses on scene understanding, object detection, and action recognition and localization.
