Welcome to my homepage!
I am a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Center for Data Science, University of Massachusetts Amherst. I work with Prof. Andrew McCallum at the Information Extraction and Synthesis Laboratory.
My areas of interest are Information Extraction, Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning.
I graduated with a Joint-PhD in Computer Science from IIT Bombay and Monash University, Australia. I worked with Prof. Ganesh Ramakrishnan and Dr. Gholamreza Haffari. As part of my PhD, I have worked on interesting problems in the area of Information Extraction. Some of these investigations are published in top-tier research conferences in the computational linguistics community. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the area, I have had to dabble with a multitude of related areas, such as, Machine Learning, Databases, Rule Learning, Inductive Logic Programming, Optimization, Natural Language Processing. A brief overview of my research can be found here.
Update: I defended my thesis on 23rd Sep 2015. My thesis can be found here.
