EducationI received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from The University of Chicago in 2012, and an M.S. from the same department along the way in '09. My undergraduate education ('02 - '06) was at Brandeis University under the Wien Scholarship, where I majored in Computer Science, Math, and Creative Writing.
Many of my summers were spent interning: 2010 and 2011 with the natural language group at the USC Information Sciences Institute, where I worked mainly with Kevin Knight, and 2009 with the speech group at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) under Evandro Gouvêa. In the more distant past, I spent the summer of 2006 at the Perseus Digital Library at Tufts, working on Latin OCR, and 2005 at the CMU Robotics Institute. I grew up in Bangalore.
