I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Perceiving Systems department with Michael Black at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany.
I received my PhD in Computer Science at Georgia Tech, advised by Devi Parikh.
ResearchI am interested in understanding and modeling aspects of human behavior using the modalities of vision and language.
I have worked on computational models for human interactions that are typical when interacting with other humans e.g., humor, narrative. I have also worked on understanding human interactions with AI, with the goal of creating better human-AI teams.
My current interests are in understanding embodied human behavior e.g., learning from natural interactions, semantic understanding of human movement, etc.
My work spans the areas of AI, machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, crowdsourcing and cognitive science.
Do explanation modalities make VQA models more predictable to a human?
