I have 11 years of industry experience working on different aspects of software development and research. Over the last 7 years I have focused on developing innovative research solutions for many real world applications using Machine Learning & Natural Language Processing in the areas of Education, Tourism, Social Media & Customer Relationship management, Information Management & Noisy Data Cleansing.

My research has been incorporated into multiple IBM products and services and has also led to the creation of new offerings such as IBM Watson Enlight for Educators.

I am currently working on enabling conversation platforms to learn from human-to-human conversations as well working on problems posed by the challenging task of answering complex multi-sentence questions.

I was amongst the top Innovators Under 35 in India awarded by MIT Technology Review and Mint (MIT TR 35 India) in 2018. I am a member of the ACM Future of Computing Academy.
