About

I am a first year Ph.D. student at University of Massachusetts Amherst advised by Prof. Brendan T. O'Connor and Prof. Mohit Iyyer. I am broadly interested in learning from crowdsourced/limited data, computational social science and natural language understanding. Recently, I have been working on event factuality models for political discourse analysis.

Previosuly, I also worked as an Applied Scientist in India Machine Learning team at Amazon, Bangalore, where I worked on problems such as - contextual bandits for recommendation systems, inducing product taxonomy from user behaviour on e-commerce platforms and meta-learning approaches for curation of event specific products. Earlier, I also worked in Advanced Technology Lab at Samsung Research, Bangalore. There, I worked on computational methods for detecting and analyzing misinformation on the web.

I did my Master's from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore , where I was very fortunate to work with Prof. P. S. Sastry and Prof. Gurunath Gurrala on Instability Prediction in Power Systems using deep learning methods.
