Brief Bio

I am a member of the Medical Imaging Solutions Group interested in applying machine learning techniques to solve problems in clinical data. I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University, USA in 2016. At IBM Research, my work has focused on language inference, question answering, and patient summarization. Before starting in the PhD program, I completed my undergraduate degree from University of Pune in India, and worked at Tata Research Development Design Center, as a Researcher for two years.
