Kushal Kafle, PhD

Research Scientist, Adobe Research

I am currently working at Adobe Research as a research scientist. I recently completed my Ph.D. in Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science at Rochester Institute of Technology where I worked with Dr. Christopher Kanan.

The overarching goal of my research is to develop develop robust vision and language models. I am interested in developing novel data and algorithms for language grounded visual understanding and specifically interested in exploring models that not only demonstrate robust visual reasoning capacity but are also right for the right reasons.
