I am actively applying to Ph.D. programs
I am a Research Fellow with the Information Extraction and Synthesis Laboratory (IESL) at the University of Massachusetts (UMass), Amherst. Before joining the lab, I obtained a Master’s degree in Computer Science from UMass and a B.Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering (with a minor in Computer Science and Engineering) from IIT Guwahati prior to that.
I am interested in research on natural language processing (NLP) systems that can reason over text and knowledge bases. I have worked on retrieval for open-domain QA and have made forays into knowledge base completion which is an important component of automated reasoning on structured data.
As a research fellow, I contribute to IESL’s efforts into OpenReview (reviewer matching, paper-reviewer affinity), and IESL’s collaboration with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative where I am working on affiliation disambiguation. I am fortunate to have worked with and to be working with awesome lab members at IESL.
I sporadically blog (I mostly edit and proof-read) on Medium.
MSc in Computer Science, 2020
University of Massachusetts, Amherst
BTech in Electronics and Communication Engineering, 2018
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati
The role allows me to pursue projects with the IESL lab members. In addition, I contribute to OpenReview, the open-access, open-discussion conference platform. I also work with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to apply IESL’s lab output to CZI’s systems and databases.
