I am a Ph.D. student at the Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, since Fall 2007. I work in machine learning, with applications to social media analysis and computational biology, with Prof. Eric Xing. I completed my Masters in 2006 from IIT Bombay, where I worked on information retrieval with Prof. Soumen Chakrabarti.
In my spare time, I like cooking (especially Indian food), dancing, Zumba fitness, and exploring new street food. I also love reading, both dead tree stuff and online media.
