I am currently working as a Research Scientist in the Dialogue group at Maluuba. My research here broadly deals with state-of-the-art end-to-end trainable dialogue systems and natural language generation for dialogue systems. My research interests are mainly Deep Learning, Machine Learning, NLP and Computer Vision.
I graduated with a Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Toronto. There, I worked with Prof. Ruslan Salakhutdinov and the Machine Learning Group and did research on soft-attention based recurrent neural networks.
I obtained my B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Kanpur.
