Sahil Sidheekh

Incoming Ph.D. Candidate - The University of Texas at Dallas
B.Tech Graduate - Indian Institute of Technology Ropar.

I am an AI researcher working broadly in the domains of probabilistic generative models and meta-learning. I also explore applications of deep learning to novel problems that can impact society for the better. Previously, I completed by undergraduate studies majoring in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Ropar, where I was fortunate to be a part of the LSAIML team headed by Dr. Narayanan C. K.

I am passionate about building robust and efficient systems that can reason probabilistically and make interpretable decisions. I enjoy connecting dots and innovating ideas that span multiple disciplines. I have a strong academic background in engineering and machine learning. If you would like to collaborate, please feel free to reach out through email :mailbox_closed:.

I will be joining the :stars: StARLing Lab headed by Dr. Sriraam Natarajan as a Ph.D. Student, starting Fall’22. Excited :sparkles:
