Hello! My name is Saurabh Garg and I am a first year PhD student at Machine Learning Department at CMU where I am advised by Prof. Zachary Lipton and Prof. Zico Kolter. I graduated from IIT Bombay, India with major and honors in Computer Science and Engineering and minors in Applied Statitics and Informatics in 2018. My Research Interests broadly lie in the field of Machine Learning. I spent one amazing year at Samsung Headquaters, Korea.

In the past, I have worked with Prof. Suyash Awate on building Statistical Machine Learning algorithms for exact MCMC samspling as a part of my Bachelor’s thesis. During my stay at IITB, I have also spent major time working with Prof. Preethi Jyothi on the problem of builing robust langauge models for code switched speech. During Summer 2018, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Soumen Chakrabarti on Question Answering using KG and corpus.

During Summer 2017, I did a internship at Samsung Electronics HQ, Korea. Previously, I interned at the Purdue University, US where I worked with Prof. Alex Pothen on designing approximation algorithms for weighted b-Matching.
