Gaurav Verma

Research Scientist/Engineer


I joined Adobe Research after completing my Bachelor of Technology in Electrical Engineering, along with a minor in Machine Learning, from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. While I was at IIT Kanpur, I was a member of Signal and Multimedia Processing Lab. My work there focused on learning modality-independent representations for affective analysis and retrieval of multimedia. Currently, at Adobe Research, my work is focused around natural language processing, information retrieval and data analytics.
When my fingers are not stationed on a computer keyboard, they are either flipping the pages of a book, or stumbling on a piano. For more information, feel free to browse through my personal webpage.
