I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the Stanford University. I am working with the Stanford NLP group. I am interested in Natural Language Processing. Earlier, I have worked on computer vision. Here is my resume.
I spent the summer of 2006 at Google R&D Center at Bangalore (now Bengarulu), working with Vineet Gupta.the University of Texas at Austin with a Master's (thesis option) in Computer Science. At UT, I worked with Dr. Ray Mooney on combining text and visual perception. Before that, I did my B.Tech. degree at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, India in Computer Science and Engineering. IIT Roorkee (formerly University of Roorkee and Thomson College of Engineering) is the oldest engineering college in India. At IIT-R, I worked with Dr. Kumkum Garg and Dr. R. C. Joshi.
In the grad school, I have taken following relevant courses:
(Social and Information) Network Analysis; Probabilistic Graphical Models; Convex Optimization;Machine Learning; Computer Vision; Visual Recognition and Search; Networks, Protocol and Security; Natural Language Processing; Numerical Linear Algebra; Modern Statistical Methods; Introduction to Math Logic
I was born and brought up in a beautiful and quiet city-Bhopal, India. Unfortunately, it is known for Bhopal Gas Tragedy. Bhopal is sometimes called 'City of Lakes' as it has many natural and man-made lakes. I did my schooling from Jawahar Lal Nehru School. In 2003, I moved to Roorkee to study Computer Science at IIT Roorkee . Roorkee is a small town near Haridwar, Dehradun and Hrishikesh. I enjoyed my four years at Roorkee to fullest with frequent trips to near-by hill stations at the foothill of Himalayas (Rishikesh, Shimla, Manali, Auli, Mussoorie, Dehradun, Haridwar etc.). IIT Roorkee is also a nice place to be to do white water rafting at Ganges, with IITR bearing most of the cost :)
Off lately, I have been biking, swimming, and running (my weakest of the three). I hope to do a triatholon some day soon. When I have too much free time (i.e. almost never these days), I like to paint, some of the paintings can be seen here.
