I am a computer vision researcher with a primary interest in geometry. Inter alia I have introduced and developed the group-theoretic approach of motion averaging.

The focus of my research group is on 3D geometry estimation.

Important Note: I do not accept students from outside IISc for short visits, internships, projects etc. Simply spamming me will not help your case.


Computer Vision (E1.216) January-April 2024

I also typically teach an advanced course on geometry in vision (Selected Topics in Computer Vision: E9.245) during Aug-Dec.


Motion Averaging: A Framework for Efficient and Accurate Large-Scale Camera Estimation in 3D Vision

Personal Interests

I have a personal interest in the history and political economy of modern India, specifically centred around the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi.

Some years ago I wrote a biography of the Gandhian economic philosopher and constructive worker, J. C. Kumarappa (1892-1960).

My occasional non-technical essays are here.
