I am a Data Scientist with expertise in Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Text Mining and Search. Over the last decade, I’ve developed AI and Data Science Solutions for companies like GitHub (Microsoft), 3M Health Information Systems and eBay as well as a handful of startups. I’ve also served as an A.I. advisor/consultant for several tech companies.
My expertise is in zeroing in on business goals and coming up with robust solutions that stand the test of time, to hard data problems. My work over the years has involved extracting insights from unstructured data, designing and developing customized recommendation systems, sentiment analysis, developing high-accuracy text classifiers, 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.
