I'm a Fourth Year PhD student in Computer Science at UT Austin. I'm advised by Prof. Pradeep Ravikumar who runs the Statistical Machine Learning Lab. We're also part of the Center for Big Data Analytics. My general research focus is on optimization and graphical models. I enjoy research that focuses on application areas, but has a strong theoretical component. My work in this vein has thus far involved Learning to Rank and Human Computation as application areas. Please see my publications for details on these. I am also interested in and have done courses/projects involving Large Scale Learning (both high dimensional and big data settings), Time Series Analysis and NLP.
I graduated with a B.Tech. from IIT Bombay in 2011. As an undergraduate, I worked on Named Entity Recognition and Search on the Semantic Web.
