Short bio

He is currently enrolled as a PhD student at Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento, Italy, working in collaboration with the Technologies of Vision (TeV) group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy. His main focus of research is in the area of deep neural networks for multimedia understanding and description generation.
Previously he worked as a research staff member at Enview R&D Labs, India. He received his Master of Technology (M. Tech.) degree in Signal Processing from Sree Chitra Thirunal College of Engineering (University of Kerala), India in 2013. He completed his Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in Electronics & Communication Engineering from Mar Baselios College of Engineering & Technology (University of Kerala), India in 2011.
