I am a graduate student at UMass Amherst. My area of research is machine learning and in the past year I have worked on its application in education. In my master's degree I have been specializing in a diverse set of ML techniques including Deep Learning, Probabilistic Graphical Models and Natural Language Processing. I have extensive experience working with human behavioural and physiological data.

Currently, I am being advised by Prof Beverly Woolf at the Center for Knowledge Communication lab. I am also a visiting researcher at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies working with Dr. Benjamin Nye and Dr. Mark Core.

Previously, I had a corporate stint at Cisco Systems, where I worked as a Software Engineer primarily solving complex problems in Service Supply Chain and also researching on applying data driven intelligence to aid decisioning.

You can read more about me here, about my research here and my list of projects here. Needless to say, I'm socially active and can be reached out at FB, Linkedin or with a good old mail. So, if you do have some comments or questions, please don't hesitate to drop in a message.
