Uddeshya is an incoming Ph.D. student in the Explainable Machine Learning group and the International Max-Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) under the supervision of Prof. Zeynep Akata. He holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT-Bombay and is fascinated by interdisciplinary RnD work happening at the intersection of computer science, machine learning, biomedical engineering, and healthcare analytics. These days he is exploring Bayesian Deep Learning, Uncertainty Estimation, and Explainable AI (XAI) for vision-based applications.

As an undergrad at IIT-B, he worked closely with Prof. Suyash P Awate on robust deep generative models for computer vision, quality enhancement, and uncertainty estimation using Bayesian Deep Learning techniques. He also worked with Prof. Biplab Banerjee on representation learning. In the past, he had wonderful opportunities to work with Prof. Arjun Jain (IIT-Bombay), Prof. Anupam Chattopadhyay (NTU Singapore, summer intern, 2017), and Dr. Eric Nichols (Honda Research Institute-Tokyo, summer intern, 2018).
