I am a PhD student at UKRI CDT in Speech and Language Technologies under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Hain , University of Sheffield. I am also a member of SPandH and Machine Intelligence for Natural Interfaces (MINI) research group.
Currently, I am working on self-supervised learning for speech, disentangled speech representations, cost-effective self-supervised fine-tuning of self-supervised learning based speech models for task-specific speech representations. Acoustic word/sub-word embeddings.
Before joining my PhD, I worked as a senior data scientist at Publicis Sapient. Before that, I was a Project Associate at the EE department of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, working for Medical Intelligence and Language Engineering lab under the supervision of Prof. A. G. Ramakrishnan. I have finished my M.Tech Research from the same lab. During my masters, I have worked on various research topics like speaker recognition, speech recognition, natural language processing for social media , applied machine and deep learning for recognising cognitive impairments using clinical data.
