I am an Applied Scientist at Amazon, Seattle currently working on knowledge extraction to build the Amazon Product Graph - a high quality knowledge base of products worldwide.

Previously, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University Bloomington, IN. There I was advised by Prof. 
Fil Menczer and Prof. Alessandro Flammini

Broadly speaking, I'm interested in problems that can benefit from Machine Learning, Social Media Data Analysis, Semantic Web technologies and NLP.

Prior to commencing my PhD studies, I was a 
Programmer Analyst at Transamerica Capital Management (TCM), AEGON USA. Additional information about my work experience or education can be found here.
