Curriculum Vitae


I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering with distinction from VIT - Vellore where I did my final project on Speech recognition using Tensorflow and deployed it as an Android application.


I am fascinated by topics in multilingual NLP especially models that leverage linguistic knowledge or deal with indic NLP low-resource languages, and NLP applications that are socially motivated. Right now, I am working on understanding metalearning to enhance the performance of NLP applications.
