About Me

I am a second year PhD student at the School of Computing, University of Utah advised by Prof. Vivek Srikumar. The areas of my research interest are Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing, particularly problems incoperating both fields. I am also exploring topics in fair Machine Learning under the guidance of Prof. Suresh Venkatasubramanian.

I was a Research Fellow in the Machine Learning, Natural Language Systems and Applications group at Microsoft Research India. I work under the guidance of Dr Prateek Jain, Dr Praneeth Netrapalli, and Dr Nagarajan Natarajan on problems related to machine learning and natural language processing.

Previously, I was a student at IIT Kanpur where I obtained my M. Tech and B. Tech (Dual Degree) in Computer Science in 2016. I worked on Hierarchal Product Classification and Text Document Representation with Prof. Harish Karnick for my master thesis. I have also closely worked under the guidance of Prof Piyush Rai on the problem of diversity priors for latent variable models and efficient algorithms for multi-label learning. I was also the first coordinator of Special Interest Group Machine Learning (SIGML) at IIT Kanpur.

I am interested in natural language processing and machine learning, especially statistical and computational intricacies relevant to the use of machine learning. Mission: Make machine smarter !! Solve intelligence. Uses the best technique in Machine Learning to build powerful general-purpose algorithms.

I have been fortunate to have been advised by smart people. They showed me the light when I was in the dark. In every step, they were there to guide me. They have left a significant mark in my life.
