Rahul K. Dass

Hello! I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student from Kolkata, India, studying at the University of Miami. My research interests lies in deep learning, computer vision, and robotics. Currently, as a U-LINK Predoctoral Fellow, I am investigating how deep learning models reinforce racial inequalities using theories and methods combining Computer Science and Sociology under the supervision of Dr. Ubbo Visser and Dr. Nick Petersen.

Prior to building deep learning models, my background was in Theoretical Physics. I achieved my Masters degree in Physics from Lancaster University and I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Anupam Mazumdar. My thesis explored the application of linking elementary particle theory with cosmology by examining the phenomenon of particle production due to an oscillating inflaton field within a non-expanding background using Quantum Field Theory.

Away from work, I enjoy making everyday memories with my better-half, binging my favorite shows and visiting family.
