I work on using machine learning techniques to solve problems in natural language processing. My focus is on solving problems instead of promoting a particular method of solving problems. So I love everyone: people who use rule-based techniques, people who use machine-learning techniques and people who use deep-learning techniques. Whatever works!
Areas that I have worked on (check out my publications):
Areas that I would love to work on:
"When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong." -- R. Buckminster Fuller
"Pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate." (Of two competing theories, the simpler explanation of an entity is to be preferred.) -- William of Ockham.
"Your goal is not to convince your audience that you are brilliant, but that your solution is trivial. If people think your findings are obvious, they must also believe that you are correct." -- Paraphrase of Stuart Shieber via L. Lee.
Countries I have visited!
Before coming to CMU I was a dual degree student in Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Kharagpur, the oldest & the largest IIT in India. I have worked with Prof. Anoop Sarkar and Prof. Sebastian Pado as an internship student.
I wish I spent lesser amount of time on social networking websites.
