I am a PhD student under the co-supervision of Prof. Mauro Cherubini and Prof. Dinesh Babu Jayagopi from IIIT Bangalore. My research interests lie in the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence. My goal is to help job seekers overcome the challenges of unemployment with a focus on interview training through the techniques of Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing. I completed my Master’s by Research in AI at IIIT Bangalore where my thesis focused on improving and automating asynchronous video interviews using Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Generation, Multimodal Processing. My industry background includes stints at Accenture Technology Labs and HP Inc R&D Labs working on different NLP problems. Prior to my Master’s, I worked at Fidelity Investments for 2 years.
