I am a PhD Student at ILCC, University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Prof. Mirella Lapata and Prof. Mark Steedman. My goal is to build efficient Grounded Semantic Parsing Models for real world data. I am funded by The Principal's Career Development Scholarship and The Edinburgh Global Research Scholarship, the most prestigious scholarships offered by the University of Edinburgh.
I have worked for Sketch Engine for four years during my under-graduation and post-graduation. I completed my Bachelors and Masters from Language Technology Research Centre, IIIT Hyderabad. I also have a Masters degree from University of York, UK.
My collaborators so far are (alphabetical order) Dr. Albert Gatt, Dr. Adam Kilgarriff, Dr. Ioannis Klapaftis, Dr. Suresh Manandhar, Dr. Diana McCarthy, Dr. Mike Rosner, Prof. Rajeev Sangal, Dr. Serge Sharoff, Dr. Mark Stevenson.
Technical interests: linux administration, networking, open source and web technologies.
Other interests: badminton, swimming, cricket, volley ball, marathons and trekking.
