About Me

Hi, I’m Sid, a first year PhD Student studying Computer Science at UCLA. I’m advised by Professor Baharan Mirzasoleiman. I’m currently interested in understanding and exploiting data in multimodal learning and self-supervised learning (data pruning, dataset distillation, data poisoning etc.)

Feel free to hit me up to talk about any of these topics!

In my free time, I like to write (https://medium.com/@sjoshi804), cook, play chess and run.
