Hi! I'm Chirag, currently a third year PhD Candidate at the Delft University of Technology, working on forecasting behavior in social situated conversations. Prior to commencing my PhD I worked as a Senior Research Engineer in the Multimodal Machine Learning lab at Carnegie Mellon University. In previous lives I've been lucky to work in different roles—as a lead iOS dev and UX designer on a collaborative platform for Broadway productions, and as a research associate at Disney Research working on detecting giraffe feeding behavior. I received a Masters in Entertainment Technology from Carnegie Mellon in 2013, and a Bachelors in Information Technology from the University of Mumbai in 2010. Outside work, I enjoy riding bikes (the muscle-powered kind), and everything involving design and story-telling.
