I am a pre-doctoral AI Center Fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I work with Kalika Bali, Monojit Choudhury and Tanuja Ganu. My research interests broadly lie in the intersection of NLP and HCI with an emphasis on their social implications.

Previously, I interned at Carnegie Mellon University with Dave Touretzky and at University College London with Emine Yilmaz and Rishabh Mehrotra. Prior to my time in research, I spent two summers with Google Summer of Code working for Julia Computing and Mozilla.

I did my undergraduate in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering at BITS Pilani, Goa, India in 2019. Coming fall, I'll be joining University of Washington as a PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering. For more details, please refer to my CV or contact me on .
