In January 2013, I graduated with a PhD from
the University of Pennsylvania. I was part of the Penn NLP group and was advised by Ani Nenkova. My research at Penn focused on indicators of text quality. The task involves investigating what constitutes good writing in different genre of text and developing automatic methods to predict the quality. Another aspect of my research has been automatic discourse parsing and the role of discourse for summarization. See my publications for more details.
Before starting at Penn, I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering from College of Engineering-Guindy, Anna University at Chennai, South India. I was born in Trichy, a beautiful temple city in Tamil Nadu.
