I am a PhD candidate advised by Prof. Gerhard Weikum. My current research focuses on understanding the credibility of textual content. I am broadly interested in text analytics, natural language processing and machine learning.

Prior to that, I completed my masters from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) and worked as a Blue Scholar Research Engineer at IBM Research India.
