 Greetings ! I am a Phd student at Stony Brook University, USA. I am advised by Prof.Steven Skiena. My research interests include
    • Text Mining/Analytics
    • Machine Learning
    • Complex systems
    • Natural Language Processing

I obtained my Masters degree in Computer Science, also from Stony Brook University in Spring 2014. At Data Science Lab I have worked on several projects. Currently, our lab focuses on representation learning geared towards Natural Language Processing. We have induced distributed word representations for ~40 languages and shown their expressive power. We are currently looking at several applications involving using these embeddings for various tasks in Natural Language Processing.  

Prior to graduate school, I spent a few years working as a software design engineer developing software for routers and switches. Here is a copy of my resume.
