Thanks for visiting.

I am currently a MS By Research student at Search and Information Extraction Lab SIEL, IIIT-Hyderabad jointly supervised by Dr. Manish Gupta from Microsoft R&D, India and Prof. Vasudeva Varma, Dean R&D, IIIT-Hyderabad. My areas of interst are : Machine Learning, Information Retrieval and Extraction, Recommendation Systems, Deep Computer Vision (incr. order of preference, right-to-left).

Currently I am working towards building “Automatic Hate Speech Detection system” for social media and “Medical Information Extraction” from social media using techniques from Machine Learning, Information Extraction and Natural Language Processing.

To find out more about my work, please visit CV and Publications.
