Hey! I am Danish, and I am a Ph.D candidate in Language Technologies at School of Computer Science in Carnegie Mellon University. I am co-advised by Dr. Graham Neubig and Dr. Eduard Hovy. My research goal is to enable machines to understand and explain natural language phenomena. Towards this mission, I work on explaining and interpreting neural representations and models. Interpretability in a general neural network pipeline would not just help us reason about the outcomes that they predict, but would also provide us cues to make them more efficient and robust.
Prior to this, I worked with Dr. Partha Talukdar at Machine And Language Learning (MALL) Lab in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I completed my bachelors degree in computer science from BITS Pilani, Pilani in 2015. During my undergraduate years, I had the opportunity to work on some interesting problems at Microsoft Research, India and Google, Hyderabad.
