I am a Senior Research Scientist in the machine learning & natural language processing group at Google Research. My primary interests lie in the use of statistical modeling for solving large-scale problems in natural language processing.

I got my PhD from the SSLI Lab at the University of Washington, Seattle where I worked with Prof. Jeff Bilmes on developing semi-supervised learning algorithms for problems in speech and human activity recognition.

During my graduate school days I also worked at Microsoft Research on problems related to multi-sensory fusion, robust speech recognition and speaker verification. I was also a recipient of the Microsoft Research Graduate Fellowship in 2007.
