I am a third year Ph.D. student at The Ohio State University. My broad research interests are Natural Language Understanding, Interpretable AI (XAI) and Visualization. I am currently being advised by Professor Han-Wei Shen and Professor Yu Su at the CSE Department.

Before moving to OSU, I finished a B.E. Hons degree in Computer Science Engineering at BITS-Pilani Hyderabad Campus, India and spent some fun time interning at the Smart Data Analytics Lab, University of Bonn.
