I am an Assistant Research Scientist at the Center for Language and Speech Processing at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. I am supported by a CIFellowship from the NSF and the CRA.

Prior to joining the CLSP, I obtained my Ph.D. from Cornell University's Deprtment of Computer Science under the direction of Prof. Claire Carde.

Research

My research falls in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). More precisely, I work in the areas of Computation Linguistics (CL) also known as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning. I am interested in the problems of opinion analysis, coreference resolution, information extraction and learning in probabilistic graphical models. More details about my research is available under the Research and Publications tabs.
