I graduated from Stanford University with Masters in Computer Science in 2019. I was a part of the Stanford NLP Group, where I was advised by Professor Chris Manning. I received my B.Tech in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli (NIT Trichy), Tamil Nadu, India in 2016.
My research interests are in natural language processing (NLP), specifically in low-resource settings, explainability of natural language generation (NLG) and commonsense reasoning.
In Spring 2019, I was a TA for CS224U (Natural Language Understanding), taught by
Christopher Potts and Bill MacCartney . I worked with of 10 CAs for 250+ students, and mentored 10+ student teams for the course project. I also taught a lecture on “Probing black box models.” (Link)
In Fall 2018, I was a TA for CS229 (Machine Learning), taught by Andrew Ng . I worked with a team of 30+ CAs for 850+ students. I also mentored 30 student teams for the course project.
In Fall 2013, I taught the basics of C++, Java and Android application development to freshmen at NIT Trichy. [Undergraduate]
