I completed my M.Tech. in CSE from IIT Bombay in 2011. After a year+ long stint in Pune, I returned as a PhD student in January 2013. My PhD advisors are Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharyya at IIT Bombay (and he is also the Director of IIT Patna now!), and Prof. Mark J Carman at Monash University. My research interests lie in natural language processing. My work has primarily been on innovative sentiment analysis approaches like use of word senses, sarcasm detection using linguistic theories, etc. I have also worked on several first-of-their kind research projects: Drunk texting prediction, News Headline Translation, a sarcastic chatbot, etc. Novel, unexplored problems are exciting!
