My research involves developing computational approaches to improve how information can be presented to people. Particularly, I build techniques for automatic summarization, quality assessment and machine translation of documents.

In January 2013, I graduated with a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. Before starting at Penn, I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering from College of Engineering-Guindy, Anna University located at Chennai, India.

I was born in Trichy, a beautiful temple city in South India.
