Anay Mehrotra

I am a third-year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Yale University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Nisheeth Vishnoi and to work with Prof. Elisa Celis. Apart from the CS department, I am affiliated with the Computation and Society Initiative.

I am broadly interested in foundational problems in Algorithmic Fairness and Trustworthy Machine Learning. Here, my current research centers around the theme of “Fair Machine Learning in the Presence of Errors and Biases.”

I completed my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Kanpur, where I received the Sri Binay Kumar Sinha Award for the best undergraduate project that addresses a problem affecting society. While at IIT Kanpur, I also attended one semester at EPFL, Switzerland as an exchange student and represented IIT Kanpur at the 2020 ICPC World Finals.

This summer, I interned at MSR India where I worked with Dr. Amit Deshpande and Prof. Anand Louis.
