Thanks for visiting.

I am currently working as a Data Scientist at Flipkart, Bangalore.

Prior to joining Flipkart, I was a MS By Research student at Search and Information Extraction Lab SIEL, IIIT-Hyderabad under joint supervision of Dr. Manish Gupta Principal Applied Scientist at Microsoft R&D, India and Prof. Vasudeva Varma, Dean R&D, IIIT-Hyderabad. My areas of interest are : Machine Learning, Information Retrieval and Extraction, Recommendation Systems, Deep Computer Vision (incr. order of preference, right-to-left).

As part of my thesis, I have worked on the problem of “Identifying Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) from Social Media under Limited Labeled Data setting” using advanced Machine Learning and NLP techniques. Along with this, I have also worked on a project which involved building a NLP system to automatically detect/flag hateful language from social media feeds. To find out more about my work, please visit CV and Publications.
