I’m a Research Fellow (Pre-Doctoral) at Microsoft Research with the PROSE group, where I am working on Last-Mile Repair in low-code applications (Excel and Powerapps), advised by Dr. José Cambronero and Dr. Vu Le. I completed my Bachelors in IT and Mathematics from Cluster Innovation Centre, University of Delhi in 2021. I’m broadly interested in working on Neuro-symbolic methods, Natural Language Processing and it’s applications in Program Synthesis and Computational Social Science.
Previously, I was a Research Software Engineer at Supedio GmbH working on Master Data Management, Medical Entity Resolution and Text Extraction from PDFs. I have interned with the research team at DRDO, Govt. of India, where I worked on an Image Segmentation task in a simulated Gazebo environment. I spent a summer at Chennai Mathematical Institute as a Mathematical Finance Summer Scholar, working on sliding-window approaches for finding abnormal rate of returns. I have also interned with the Data Science team at Cronycle, UK, building a production-ready RSS aggregating pipeline. In the summer of 2018, I was a student developer with Google Summer of Code.
I have also had the good fortune to work with Dr. Rajiv Ratn Shah, Dr. Lucie Flek and Dr. Alicia Nobles.
