About me

Welcome! I am a fourth-year Ph.D. Candidate at the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kharagpur advised by Prof. Pawan Goyal and Prof. Sourangshu Bhattacharya. As part of the Complex Networks Research Group (CNeRG), I work on problems that lie at the intersection of Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, and Computational Social Science. In 2018, I interned at IBM Research, India with Dipyaman Banerjee and Kuntal Dey.

I obtained my Masters from IIIT Delhi under the supervision of Prof. Sambuddho Chakravarty. I did my Undergrad at Jadavpur University, where I worked with Prof. Samiran Chattopadhyay. Additionally, I have four years of professional experience with PwC India specializing in Data Modeling and Business Intelligence.

Research Interests

Aspect-based Sentiment Analysis, Emotion Analysis, Text Summarization, AI for Tourism
