Happy Me !!
Mixing Padmasana with Hasyaasana

I am a second year graduate student working under the supervision of Karen Livescu at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC). Before TTIC, I spent two years as a software engineer in IBM Research, New Delhi. I got my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in 2013.

I am interested in machine learning and in particular, speech and natural language processing (NLP).
