I am a third year CS PhD student in the UNC NLP lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, advised by Prof. Mohit Bansal. Previously, I spent 1.5 years as Data Scientist at Sciome LLC, a budding health-informatics startup based out of Durham. I built Information Extraction pipelines for parsing scientific articles and converting the full-text into meaningful, structured data. I collaborated with bioinformaticians and cheminformaticians to develop deep learning models for gene expression extrapolation and toxicological assay image analysis.

I graduated with a Masters in Biomedical & Health Informatics from University of Washington School of Medicine and worked towards a thesis on extraction of clinical timeline from patient discharge summaries under the guidance of Prof. Meliha Yetisgen. At the same time, I was also a Research Assistant advised by Prof. Elaine O. Nsoesie (who has since moved to Boston University) at the Institute of Health Metrics & Evaluation. We developed novel machine learning approaches for public health research problems.

I completed my undergraduate (Integrated B.Tech & M.Tech) in Electronics & Electrical Communication Engineering, with specialization in Visual Info. Processing & Embedded Systems from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in 2015. My broad research interests are in Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
