I was a Professor in the CSE department at IIT Kanpur and retired in 2018. Since 2018, after my retirement, I have been an Emeritus Fellow initially in the Interdisciplinary program in Cognitive Science and now in the Department of Cognitive Science at IIT Kanpur.
I have degrees in chemical engineering (BTech, IIT Bombay, 1974), nuclear engineering and technology (MTech, IIT Kanpur, 1977) and Computer Science (Ph.D., IIT Kanpur, 1984).
I have been a faculty member at IIT Kanpur since 1984.
I am interested broadly in AI and machine learning and have always been interested in understanding how the human brain/ mind works. I have been working mostly in cognitive science in the last 3 years. Other interests include programming languages, logic and reasoning.
