Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
I am a PhD student at IISc Bangalore. My research interests include Neuroscience, Natural language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML). I am affiliated to Machine And Language Learning Lab (MALL) at IISc. We are interested in automated knowledge base construction and completion. Apart from research, I enjoy playing Table Tennis in my spare time.
