I am a research scientist at Allen AI, Seattle. I completed my PhD at the Databases group in MPI, August 2016. My work revolves around Information Extraction, NLP and Machine Learning with a focus on construction of a Commonsense Knowledge Base which is aware of the facts like sizeOf(flower,small) and hasEmotion(hug, relief). I founded PQRS Research to enable undergrad CS students from developing nations get research exposure. In PQRS, we work on AI projects. My vision is a community driven research mentorship network that does meaningful research and trains the undergrad CS students. Under the ambit of PQRS, I organized a 3-day tutorial workshop on AI and the Web which was very well received.
