Nithin Gopalakrishnan Nair

Ph.D. Student at Johns Hopkins University


I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at VIU Lab , Johns Hopkins University. I am advised by Dr. Vishal M Patel .

I work on problems in Computer Vision. My research areas include Face recognition and Deep Generative Modelling with a special emphasis on Plug and Play models and efficient architectures for generation, enabling training and inference of generative models on low compute resources.

Prior to joining JHU, I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s dual degree (B.Tech& M.Tech) in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. At IIT Madras, I worked with Dr AN Rajagopalan at the IPCV Lab, on image reconstruction. In my free time, I enjoy running and hiking.
