I am a fourth-year PhD student in the College of Information and Computer Sciences working with James Allan in the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval lab at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

My research interest broadly lies in the areas of information retrieval, natural language processing and deep learning. I currently focus on dis/misinformation detection, and fact extraction and verification on different data domains.
