Introduction

profilepic

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the research group of Prof. Cengiz Pehlevan, at Harvard University SEAS, from May 2023 through Aug 2023. I am interested in the theory of Deep Learning, using methods from theoretical physics, applied maths, and ideas from neuroscience. I have worked on correspondences between Quantum Field Theory, the framework for theoretical particle physics, and Neural Networks, the backbones for Deep Learning.

I completed my PhD in theoretical high energy physics group at Northeastern U. in Apr 2023, supervised by Prof. Jim Halverson. My PhD dissertation included establishing one of the very first correspondences between Neural Network ensembles and Quantum Field Theories on Euclidean Background. This bridge provides us an alternative path to study Field Theories via Neural Network architectures, without learning or optimization techniques.

I am a junior investigator at the NSF IAIFI, from Oct 2020 until Aug 2023. In Sept 2023, I will start as a postdoctoral fellow at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.

I received my Bachelors and Masters in Engineering Physics at IIT Bombay in Aug 2017.

Curriculum Vitae

Outreach

I am passionate about promoting equity for underrepresented minorities in STEM. To that end, I was a member of the Early Career and Equity Committee at IAIFI, and Graduate Students Council of Northeastern University College of Science, during 2020 - 2022. Additionally, I started monthly meetings and networking activities for Graduate Women in Physics at Northeastern University Dept of Physics, since 2021.

I'm driven by the need of better education opportunities for women and minorities, from grass-roots to graduate level, especially in poorer, war-torn economies. I have joined the Artificial Intelligence Summer School organizing committee, at Scientists for Palestine, since Jan 2023.

Sometimes, I take part in STEM outreach programs for high school students, such as the ones organized by A Wonder of Women in STEM. I look forward to a future, where children of any age, color, race, gender, and economic background are provided with ample opportunities for their education.
