Google Research

Vidhya Navalpakkam


I am currently a Principal Scientist at Google Research. I lead an interdisciplinary team at the intersection of Machine learning, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology and Vision. My interests are in modeling user attention and behavior across multimodal interfaces, for improved usability and accessibility of Google products. I am also interested in applications of attention for healthcare (e.g., smartphone-based screening for health conditions).
