About Me

I am a Data Scientist with expertise in Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Text Mining and Search. Over the last decade, I’ve worked for various technology organizations including GitHub (Microsoft), 3M Health Information Systems and eBay. My expertise is in zeroing in on business goals and coming up with strategic solutions to hard data problems. I’ve done work on extracting insights from data, recommendation systems, sentiment analysis, text classification, search enhancements and text summarization.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science with a focus on Text Mining, Machine Learning and Search from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I’ve authored over ten first author papers at top tier Data Mining and NLP venues such as WWW, COLING, NAACL, IEEE Big Data and Information Retrieval Journal. Browse the links below to learn more.
