I am a Master's student at the University of South Florida (USF) with a research focus in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning. I have obtained my Bachelor's degree from USF in 2020 with a major in Computer Science. I have a particular interest in Neural Machine Translation in the context of low-resource languages as well as cross-lingual representation learning for multilingual NLU tasks.
My current research at the Advancing Machine and Human Reasoning Lab (AHMR) mainly revolves around translation, representation learning and curriculum learning. I am co-advised by Dr. Sriram Chellappan and Dr. John Licato
Previously, I have had an opportunity to explore a variety of research areas. During the summers of 2020 and 2019, I worked as an intern at Salesforce and IBM Research respectively. At Salesforce, I developed, tested and deployed features for the Salesforce Blockchain (BCP) team. At IBM Research, I worked under the supervision of Dr. Rong Chang in Financial Services (FSS) team. My work involved creating a general purpose framework for automatic build, deployment and migration of ML capabilities through API Services. Through my sophomore undergraduate year, I worked and contributed to projects related to Use of Gamification in Epidemiology led by Dr. Ryan Carney and Brain Drone Race Simulation led by Dr. Marvin Andujar.Download CV
