I am a PhD student at Language Technologies, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. I am advised by Prof. Alan W. Black and Prof. Ruslan Salakhutdinov. My research focuses on controllable text generation.

I graduated with a Masters in Language Technologies in Aug 2017. During that time, I was leading the CMU Magnus team in the Amazon Alexa Prize competition. I also worked with Prof. Carolyn Rose on linguistic markers of influence. Before joining CMU, I worked as an Analyst at Goldman Sachs, India on virtualization and operating systems. I completed my undergraduate at National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India. I worked with Dr. Sowmya Kamath on building a question answering system for the semantic web.
