Aditi Mavalankar

I am a graduate student in the Computer Science department at UC San Diego advised by Prof. Sicun Gao. I completed my undergrad at the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) in August 2016.

I spent two summers (SDE, 2017 and Applied Scientist, 2018) interning at Amazon Lab126 in the Computer Vision team.

I am currently co-organizing ExploreCSR@UCSD, a Google-funded workshop for promoting Computer Science research among women. During my Master's at UC San Diego, I was the graduate student mentor of the Early Research Scholars Program (ERSP), led by Prof. Christine Alvarado, aimed at promoting research among undergraduate students, especially students from communities underrepresented in Computer Science.

Other than my work, I love singing (check out my YouTube channel!), dancing and reading.

Research

I am primarily interested in devising sample-efficient algorithms for learning transferrable representations for skills and tasks in continuous environments using Deep Reinforcement Learning. During my undergrad, I worked on projects in Cognitive Science, Programming Languages, and Online Education.
