I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science at University of Maryland, College Park. I work with Prof. Lise Getoor in the LINQS lab. I have a Masters in Computer Science from University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
My research interests include structured prediction, statistical relational modeling, natural language processing, probabilistic modeling. I am broadly interested in structured prediction problems involving rich, complex, interlinked, heterogeneous data in online networks, such as online courses and social networks. I am particularly interested in developing computational methods for combining structured behavioral and interaction data, and unstructured data such as natural language text in discussion forums.
My thesis proposal titled "A Probabilistic Approach to Modeling Socio-behavioral Interactions" can be found here.
