About Me

I am a Research Fellow at the Microsoft PROSE team. Within PROSE, I a work with the Blue-Pencil team, which focuses on developing assistive modeless program synthesis systems. My research & development interests lie in Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics, and Formal Languages. I have completed my bachelors degree in Electrical & Electronics engineering from BITS Pilani (Goa Campus), India. Besides my professional research interests, I also love to spend time reading books, hitting the gym, and participating in education efforts for technology. I am also occasionally curious about behavioral science, economics, and anthropology.
