I am a PhD student at the ECE Department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and am also associated with CyLab. I graduated with an M.S. from the same university in Dec. 2008 and it was great to be offered the chance to stick around for a few, well not exactly a few, more years. Before joining CMU, I graduated with a B.Tech. degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT), Nagpur in 2007. Presently, I work at CMU's CyLab Biometrics Center on automatic facial landmarking and facial recognition. My advisor is Prof. Marios Savvides.
