I am a first year PhD candidate at CDT in NLP, School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh advised by Dr. Alexandra Birch. My research interests lie in the field of Natural Language Processing. I am associated with the STATMT group. I will be exploring the area of Multi-lingual Dialogue Systems.
I recently submitted my thesis for Masters degree at Indian Institute of Technology Madras where I was jointly advised by Dr. Balaraman Ravindran and Dr. Mitesh M. Khapra. My thesis involved incorporating information from unstructured data in dialogue systems. I was also associated with RBC-DSAI.
