Yes. My full name has 26 characters and it IS very long! Even though I like my name, I wouldn't have complained if I had a shorter one.

Anyways, I am a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at the University of Georgia. I graduated with my masters in Artificial Intelligence from here in May'10.

I work closely with Dr. Prashant Doshi on autonomous multiagent decision making systems in probabilistic or partially observable scenarios for my PhD research. My other research interests include robotics, machine learning, evolutionary algorithms and natural language processing.

As far as extra-curriculars are concerned, I play cricket on the weekends (I captain the UGA Cricket Club) and lately I've been digging into web design, SEO research and the like. Apart from all that, I try hard to have a social life ;)
