News: Since Jan 2016, I am a Lecturer (US Assistant Professor) at the University of Essex. My new homepage is here

I develop natural language processing and machine learning techniques to both understand how people use language, and build language-related technology. In particular, I create models which infer how documents and conversations are structured and the impressions they make on the readers and listeners. I am pursuing how this technology can be used to automatically assess the quality of documents, to summarize and generate text, and improve search of social media content.

Between January 2013 and Feb 2015, I worked as a Newton International Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. Before starting here, I graduated with a PhD and Masters from the University of Pennsylvania. 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.
