I am a Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM Research India, where I lead the effort on developing cognitive solutions for education. My work includes building conversational intelligent tutoring systems, platforms for skill progression and solutions for corporate learning.
Prior to working on education solutions, I worked in the services analytics group at the lab. I was involved in developing solutions to improve operational efficiency of service delivery teams by analyzing operational data, building simulation and optimization models for task allocation. In the past I have worked on mining data of distributed software development teams to predict effort and built a service oriented modeling and architecture platform.
I joined IBM Research in 2007. I received my Masters degree from Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences and a Bachelor in Electronics Engineering from National Institute of Technology-Surat.
