I am a graduate student in Physics/Applied Math at Princeton University. I completed my undergraduate education in Engineering Physics, with Honors in Physics, at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay , in 2011.
I currently work with Prof. Amit Singer on developing algorithms for 3D structure reconstruction of macromolecules using cryo-electron microscopy. The motivation for this problem is to answer biological questions related to small protein structures that have so far remained unresolved. We employ techniques from machine learning, statistical estimation theory, convex optimization, signal processing and numerical linear algebra. I am interested in applying machine learning and statistical techniques to solve real world problems, broadly in the computer vision and NLP space.
The algorithms that I developed during my PhD are available in our open source software toolbox "ASPIRE", available for download here.
