Member IBM Academy of Technology
I was born in New Delhi, India. I received the B.E. degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Mysore University, the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Washington University, St. Louis, USA, and the Ph. D. degree in Electronics from the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India. I joined IBM Research India in 1998 where I currently lead a team of world class researchers developing the next generation Big Data technologies. I am a member of the IBM Academy of Technology and an IBM Master Inventor.
I enjoy teaching and interacting with students. I often teach at IIT Delhi and am on the senate of IIIT Delhi. I also like writing on technology in everyday life. My monthly series Folk Technology appeared in the i.t. magazine in 2008.
Text produced in informal settings (email, blogs, tweets, SMS, chat) and text which results from processing (speech recognition, OCR) is inherently noisy. Operations like IR, IE, Mining, NLP need new techniques to contend with the noise. Over the years, apart from text, I have searched for informative patterns in signals ranging from speech, image and text to communication pulses. My team's work on Noisy Text Analytics has been recognized as an IBM research accomplishment in 2011. Read more about my research here.
