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

Right before joining Amazon, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University Bloomington, IN. My dissertation work, advised by Prof. Fil Menczer and Prof. Alessandro Flammini, focussed on research and development of computational methods for fact checking by mining large knowledge graphs.

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

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.
