I am a second-year graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Rochester pursuing an MS in Computational Linguistics. I am currently working as a graduate researcher under Prof. Aaron Steven White at the FACTS Lab, where I focus on developing annotation frameworks, and building deep neural network architectures to extract semantic information from text. I am also working with Prof. James Allen on improving semantic parsing using statistical Word Sense Disambiguation. Check out my publications page for recent publications.

I also worked with Prof. Schubert on turn-taking corpus annotations of LISSA, a virtual agent designed to improve communication skills of ASD teens and old-aged people.

Before coming to the University of Rochester, I worked as a Senior Consultant at EXL Services on developing credit portfolio strategies for major retail banks in Africa and UK.

I graduated from IIT Kharagpur, India, in 2014 with a Dual Degree (B.Tech. (H) + M.Tech.) in Agricultural and Food Engineering, my Master’s specialization was Food Process Engineering.

Research interests - to work at the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning, especially extracting semantic information from text. Othere interests: Semantic Parsing, Common Sense Reasoning, Text Generation etc.
