I am a senior software engineer at IBM AI Research. My broad research interests include AutoML, AI programming models, natural language processing and applied machine learning. 

I am currently working on AutoML, and my team has built a Python library for semi-automated data science. I am also working on AutoML for natural language processing tasks.

In the past, I have worked on deep generative models, probabilistic programming, text classification and ranking, anomaly detection and statistical machine translation. I have applied machine learning to various business problems in industries such as food safety, manufacturing and construction.

I have a masters degree in computer science and engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India where I was awarded a gold medal for the best academic performance.
