I work in IBM's Watson Technologies group, on the WatsonTM System, which demonstrated superior question answering capabilities by famously winning against human grand champions on the Jeopardy! quiz show. My research aims to advance the DeepQA technology inside Watson.

My expertise is in the area of Natural Language Processing and, within this realm, I have worked on event-based information extraction, opinion/sentiment analysis, computational representation of lexical semantics, and their applications in the biomedical domain.

I have a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Utah, a Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota, and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Pune (India).
