About me

I am a research associate at School of Informatics, the University of Edinburgh. I am currently collaborating on the H2020 SUMMA project with Shay Cohen.

Previously, I was a doctoral student (2011-2014) at Université de Lorraine, Nancy, working in the team Synalp at Loria INRIA under the supervision of Claire Gardent. I was awarded an Erasmus Mundus Masters scholarship (2009-2011) in Language and Communication Technology (EM-LCT). I did my major (Bachelor of Technology (Honors), 2005-2009) in Computer Science and Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur India.

My research focuses on natural language understanding and generation. I aim to develop general framworks for generating from underlying meaning representation or for text rewriting such as summarization, text simplification and paraphrase generation. The idea is to develop a general framework that is not specific to an application and it incorporates syntactic and semantic information.
