Udit Arora

I am a masters student in Computer Science at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, where I am pursuing research and coursework related to Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.

Prior to this, I worked as a Research Engineer at Product Labs, IIIT Hyderabad, where I worked on applying research in the domain of object detection/tracking, document querying and speech processing to develop commercially viable products. I also worked as a Research Associate at Laboratory for Computational Social Systems, IIIT Delhi, where I worked on research problems in the domain of blackmarket-driven social media fraud and multimodal text summarization.

I completed my bachelors in Computer Engineering from NSIT, University of Delhi, following which I worked at Microsoft as a Software Engineer in the Office Product Group, where I worked on products like Excel, Kaizala and Skype for Business.
