She works in collaboration with several peers & mentors at prestigious research groups in AMU, UCLA, Life Lab Foundation, etc., where she finds herself swearing by her go-to work ethics – constantly pushing her limits, utilizing several domains of expertise & engaging in constructive criticism. Although her research lies in machine intelligence, she strongly believes in 'humans-in-the-loop' systems to effectively create real-world ML solutions empowered by human values & assistance. Greatly inspired by values like diversity and inclusion, she attributes these to her upbringing & her hometown Mumbai. Like-wise, when not in front of the computer screen, she likes to read about issues pertaining to women empowerment, human rights, politics, etc., and hopes to build a society whose strengths lie in its diversity and inclusion.
