Unnat Jain

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UIUC working with Alex Schwing and Svetlana Lazebnik. Previously, I completed my MS in Computer Science at UIUC. Within computer vision and machine learning, I am currently looking into improving our understanding of embodied agents and vision and language methods. I spent summer 2018 at Allen Institute for AI (AI2, Seattle) working with Luca Weihs, Aniruddha Kembhavi, and Ali Farhadi.

Earlier, I graduated from IIT Kanpur where I did my thesis with Vinay Namboodiri on visual place recognition. During this, I spent a summer at UMass Amherst where I worked with Erik Learned-Miller.
