I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. I work with my advisor Marine Carpuat and other members of the CLIP lab on problems in Natural Language Processing. More specifically, I'm interested in semantics, multilingual NLP and machine translation.
My current research focus is on comparing and contrasting the meaning of text in different languages using the idea of entailment. I am also looking into learning representations for multilingual data that facilitate meaningful and easy comparisons across langauges.
I got my undergraduate degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, where I was advised by Niloy Ganguly. During my undergraduate days, I also spent two summers at Microsoft Research India in Bangalore where I worked with Monojit Choudhury and others in the Multilingual Systems group.
I grew up in the lovely city of Ahmedabad.
