Harshit Varma | हर्षित वर्मा
Pre-Doctoral Researcher Google AI

Hi, I am a Pre-Doctoral Researcher at Google Research, in the Machine Learning and Optimization team. I am working on topics in large-scale ML, retrieval, and generative modeling, advised by an incredible set of mentors: Dr. Cho-Jui Hsieh, Dr. Prateek Jain, Dr. Inderjit Dhillon, and Dr. Dheeraj Nagaraj.
I recently graduated from IIT Bombay with a bachelor’s degree (with honours) in Computer Science and Engineering, where I had the good fortune of being advised by Prof. Sunita Sarawagi and Prof. Suyash Awate.
My current research interests lie (broadly) in machine learning. I am particularly interested in the foundational aspects of deep learning, such as optimization, representation learning, improving the training speed, generalizability, and robustness of deep neural networks, adapting them to unseen domains, incorporating task-specific constraints, different kinds of supervision, and other related topics.
