Apoorv Khandelwal


Hey, I'm Apoorv! I'm currently a predoctoral researcher on PRIOR at the Allen Institute for AI. I graduated from Cornell University in May 2020, where I worked in computer vision with Noah Snavely and Hadar Averbuch-Elor.

My research interests primarily lie in vision-and-language and embodied AI. I'm very broadly interested in AI research related to ethics and sustainability.

In my free time, I love to rock climb, bike, ski, and kayak with friends and family!
