I am Siddharth, a third-year graduate student in the Psychology Department and the Computer Science Department at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I am interested in the intersection of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. My research interests include using computational modelling techniques like Deep Learning and Machine Learning to understand our brains reprsent semantic information. I also use techniques from Cognitive Science to understand semantic representations in AI models.
I’m affiliated with the Knowledge and Concepts Lab and the Visual Cognition Lab. Prior to joining as a PhD student, I worked as a Research Specialist at the Visual Cognition Lab after graduating from undergrad in 2019. During my undergrad, I spent a summer at Brown University working at the Serre Lab. I also spent 6 months at VMware in Bangalore, India as a R&D intern during spring 2019.
In another life, I was a child actor. One of my tv series, aired on Indian National television (Doordarshan). One of my short films on youtube has about 3.7 million views. In my free time, I love playing the guitar, writing songs and playing table tennis. I have made the anthem for Hyderabad Hunters which is a team in the Premier Badminton League.
