Here is how my name is pronounced.
I am a Master's student at The Ohio State University in the Department of Computer Science. I am currently working as a Research Associate under the guidance of Dr. Alan Ritter and Dr. Marie-Catherine de Marneffe. My research involves Natural Langauge Processing and Social Media data. I was previously the Teaching Associate for Introduction to Computer Programming in C++ for Engineers and Scientists.
My areas of interest include Natural Language Processing, Data Mining, Information Extraction from Social Media, Artificial Intelligence, Algorithms and Data Structures. I have significant programming experience in Java, C and Python (code samples and HackerRank profile can be found in the Navigation bar).
I am also fascinated by the amount of information generated and gathered on Social Media. It is wonderful to see that news and alerts can get propogated fairly quickly with the use of Social Media tools like Twitter. With great power also comes great responsibility. Analyzing of Twitter data is a keen interest area of mine since it helps get a better understanding of the kind of things that people are really interested in and want to talk about.
