I’m an NLP and ML Research Scientist at Apple, Siri International.
I finished my Ph.D. in computer science at UKP Lab and AIPHES at UKP Labs, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, working on natural language processing.
The goal of my research is to ease information preparation using human in the loop. To this case, we worked on interactive personalized summarization, interactive text compression, and personalized explainable recommendation.
My research interest is automatic text summarization, information extraction, deep learning and interactive learning to build tools towards this goal.
Before by Ph.D., I completed my MS by Research Computer Science with specialization in NLP from Language Technologies Research Centre IIIT-Hyderabad. My Master’s thesis was on “Transfer Grammar Engine and Automatic Learning of Reorder Rules in Machine Translation” tried and tested on English-Hindi Machine Translation system.
Job Experience: Internship at Apple, Internship at RMIT Search Lab, NLP and ML engineer at IBM Watson India, Research Engineer at Sketch Engine
