About

Hello! I am a Computer Science MS-PhD Student at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst. My areas of interest include Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and AI for Social Good. I work in the ML for Education Lab advised by Prof. Andrew Lan. As a graduate student I have interned at AWS AI Labs in the Quicksight Q Team.

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Patna where I was advised by Prof. Asif Ekbal in the AI-NLP-ML Lab from my sophomore year. During my undergrad days, I also had wonderful opportunities interning/collaborating with several industrial (SciSpace, IBM Research, Wipro Research) and academic labs (IR group at UIC, DKE group at BUW, VAL group at IISc Bangalore).
