I am Viraj, currently a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I work at Computer Vision and Robotics Lab. Since May 2021, I an Applied Science intern at Amazon with Dr. Aleix Martinez.
My research interests lie at the intersection of Computer Vision and Imaging Inverse Problems. I work on developing algorithms to leverage novel Generative Models and Deep Learning techniques in solving imaging and image manipulation tasks.
Previously, I completed B.Tech. in EE from IIT Roorkee in 2016 and joined PhD program at Iowa State University where I earned MS in ECE before transferring to UIUC. At DICE Lab, ISU, I worked under the guidance of Dr. Chinmay Hegde.
I explored Inverse problems in Imaging (e.g. compressive sensing) and Generative Models in past through my research projects. Please check out the Projects and Publications section, or my resume to learn more!
For Summer 2019, I was research intern at Siemens Healthineers in Dr. Mariappan Nadar's group working on ML-based MR Reconstuction problems.
For B. Tech. project, I worked under guidance of Dr. Gopinatha Pillai on Answer sentence selection.
