College of Information and Computer Sciences,
UMass Amherst

I am a PhD Student working with Prof. Hong Yu in the BioNLP Research Lab at CICS, UMass Amherst/ QHS, UMass Medical School. My research interests focus on Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Information Extraction.


My work at UMass focuses on using Machine Learning to model various learning problems in the domain of natural language understanding, information extraction etc. I currently work on Medical Text corpora, using Machine Learning to extract usable structured information from noisy unstructured text. My work uses methods from frameworks like Probabilistic Graphical Models, Neural Networks, Convex Optimization etc.

Before starting at UMass, I worked at Samsung in Embedded Software Division. Before that, I was doing my undergrad from Dept of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee.
