Google Research

Varun Gulshan


I've been with Google since 2013, working in the areas of Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Health Research. I was the engineering co-founder of the medical imaging team within Google research, where we developed and deployed models for detecting diabetic retinopathy from retina images. My current research focus is using ML and remote sensing for social impact applications (such as flood forecasting, water management). Prior to Google I was part of the 6 people team at Flutter, building systems for real time gesture recognition. I completed my PhD from the Visual Geometry Group in Oxford, UK and Bachelors in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi. Link to my personal website.
