Senior Research Scientist, Cloud + AI, Microsoft
150th Avenue, NE
I am a Research Scientist in the Machine Translation Team at Microsoft. I received my MS in Language Technologies at the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, advised by professor Florian Metze. Prior to that, I graduated from IIT Indore, India with a B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering and the President of India Gold Medal.
My research interests are mainly in Sequence Modeling, Evaluation and Representation Learning with a strong focus on large-scale text and speech (natural language) applications. Specifically, I am interested in:
Building computational models which could capture rich sequence-level phenomena (e.g., compositionality) at different scales.
Constructing compact representations & systems which could allow accessible manipulations at different levels of abstraction.
The overarching mission of my research is to build scalable, efficient and trustworthy natural language processing (NLP) models & applications which could be reliably used in rich real-world settings.
