Shashanka Venkataramanan
Bonjour !!

I am a Doctoral student with the LinkMedia team at INRIA Rennes, where I am advised by some amazing researchers Dr. Yannis Avrithis, Dr. Ewa Kijak and Dr. Laurent Amsaleg. My work mainly focuses on developing interesting algorithms to enhance instance and category-level visual representations in unsupervised and weakly-supervised settings.

I recently graduated with my Masters in C.S from the Center for Research in Computer Vision at the University of Central Florida, USA with Dr. Abhijit Mahalanobis. Prior joining UCF, I spent some time at the beautiful Indian Institute of Science as a research assistant with Dr. Soma Biswas and Dr. Sivaram Prasad Mudunuri. I feel lucky and grateful to have worked with them.
