I'm a second-year PhD student at Stony Brook. Currently, I am exploring problems in natural language understanding; particularly, reasoning in stories. I collaborate with Nate Chambers and Ray Mooney on this line of work. I am also working on analysing energy efficiency of NLP models, also collaborating with Aruna Balasubramanian.
Previously, I have dabbled with problems in machine translation, clickbait detection and word sense disambiguation.
I graduated with a Master's degree in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University in May 2020. I was primarily advised by Philipp Koehn and worked on a variety of problems across natural language processing.
Over the years, I have been involved in several notable side projects. I worked on a chat platform - Ping - that allowed users to communicate with each other regardless of language. I was involved in efforts to build a service - hello friend - that allowed people without internet access to avail various crucial facilities. In a past life, I was an iOS developer for several small-scale applications.
