Hi! I am Sayan, a second year Ph.D. student in computer science at the University of Southern California. I am working at USC's Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) with Prof. Louis-Philippe Morency and Prof. Stefan Scherer. Prior to my graduate studies, I completed a Master's degree from the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore , and worked for a year at NVIDIA.

My interests are in machine learning, particularly on applications to emotion analysis and affective computing. I have worked previously on speech, video processing and swarm intelligence. I have also recently developed an interest in issues concerning scalability and deployment of machine learning algorithms, which are nice complements to my research interests.

I love learning different, diverse things, travelling and reading about history. New experiences are always welcome to me !
