Higher Secondary (1975), KV AMC Lucknow, followed by B.Tech. (1980) in Mechanical Engineering, and M.Tech. (1983) and PhD. (1989) in Computer Science from IIT Bombay.


My long term goals are to build articulate problem solving systems that can interact with human beings. In this context I am looking at the following areas : Memory Based Reasoning, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Planning and Constraint Satisfaction, Qualitative Reasoning, Natural Language Generation.

Sponsored Projects and Students

In the AIDB lab we have done a few projects in these areas in which a number of students have participated, resulting in some software and some publications.


I teach courses on Artificial Intelligence, Planning and Constraint Satisfaction, Memory Based Reasoning in AI, and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, amongst others in the curriculum.

Other Stuff

People I know, some photos, some writing, and links.
