Sanjeev Kumar Karn

I am a third year PhD student at CIS, LMU Munich under supervision of Prof. Hinrich Sch├╝tze, working on applications of Deep Learning in Natural Language Processing (NLP). I am sponsored by Siemens Corporate Technology and Smart Data Web, a BMWi funded project. I have obtained my Masters in Informatics from Technical University of Munich under supervision of Prof. Dr. Thomas Runkler and Dr. Ulli Waltinger with the thesis titled "From Information Extraction to Knowledge Graph Construction: A Machine Learning and Statistical Approach on Industrial Data."

Before coming to Germany, I did my bachelor study at Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal, India in Computer Science and Engineering.

My main research interests is deep learning and its applications in natural language understanding. I am particularly more interested in information extraction, text summarization and natural language generation using recurrent neural networks.
