My name is Utkarsh Tyagi. I am currently an M.S. in C.S. student at the University of Maryland, College Park. At UMCP, I work under the guidance of Prof. Dinesh Manocha at Gamma Lab on various problems in speech and audio processing. Previously, I worked as a Software Engineer II at Atlassian, India. Beyond Software Engineering, I am interested in Speech and Language Processing. I am working as a part time researcher at MIDAS Labs @ IIIT Delhi under the supervision of Prof. Rajiv Ratn Shah. Here, I worked on problems like disfluency detection in speech and complex named entity recognition.

Previously I have interned in the Voice Intelligence team at Samsung Research Institute, Bangalore. Here I worked on improving Bixby’s wakeup word detection and built a vocabulary-independent, lightweight keyword spotter. I have also worked as a research intern at the Samsung Innovation Lab, DTU. Here, I developed an AI-powered mobile camera-based application to calculate sustained attention span using a candle flame test.

I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science and Engineering at Delhi Technological University in 2021. I maintain a list of my publications and research implementations under the Research tab. I am always open to collaborations and please feel free to drop a mail!
