roundedI am a Postdoctoral Scholar at UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Trevor Darrell. I have completed my PhD at Max Planck Institute for Informatics under supervision of Prof. Bernt Schiele. My research is at the intersection of vision and language. I am interested in a variety of tasks, including image and video description, visual grounding, visual question answering, etc. Recently, I am focusing on building explainable models and addressing bias in existing vision and language models.
