Maitreya Patel

Ph.D. Student, School of Computing & AI, Arizona State University.


I am a second-year Ph.D. student at Arizona State University (ASU). I receieved my master’s in computer science with a thesis in December 2022 from ASU.

I work with Yezhou Yang and Chitta Baral and closely collaborate with Tejas Gokhale (Ph.D. candidate).

My goal as a Ph.D. student is to pursue research in the domain of Robust and Efficient Multi-modal representation learning. To achieve this, I genuinely believe that Counterfactual/Causal Reasoning will play the most important role. Apart from this, I’m super interested in using Language as a Computation tool for robotics tasks and Visual Language Navigation.

Apart from academics, I like to work on interesting open-source projects. Recently, I’m spending my free time developing reliability-score (coming soon – will be released on March’23) and not-so-secure-ai (under review for product market fit).


Nov 4, 2022 Defended my master’s thesis; committee: Yezhou Yang (Chair), Chitta Baral (member), and Kookjin Lee (member)
Oct 6, 2022 Two long papers got accepted at EMNLP main conference. :sparkles: :smile:
Aug 2, 2022 I will be continuing my research as PhD student at ASU!
May 12, 2022 I will be working at LatentAI for the summer as AI/ML Intern.
