I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Music at the University of California, San Diego. I previously did my Masters in Music Technology from Carnegie Mellon University. My primary research interest has been singing voice analysis and synthesis through a deeper understanding of the source-filter theory. I am now also delving in the area of spatial audio, specifically towards exploring some deep learning methods for HRTF personalization. In addition to my academic side, I am a trained Hindustani Classical vocalist. I also play the keyboard and the drums and I find an interest in a wide variety of music genres. I find that jazz and Indian classical genres of music go really well with each other and I enjoy performing and listening to music that intersects the two.
