I am a third year CS PhD student in the MURGe Lab (part of the bigger UNC NLP Lab) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, advised by Prof. Mohit Bansal. Broadly, my research focuses on developing explainable (with a particular interest in structured/graphical explanations) and robust NLP models for the tasks of Question Answering (EMNLP 2020, NAACL 2021), Natural Language Inference (EMNLP 2020) and Commonsense Reasoning (EMNLP 2021). In the past, I have also spent some time understanding the nuances of conjunctions in English (EMNLP 2020, COLING 2018).

Previously, I spent two wonderful years at IBM Research - India building industry-scale Intelligent Tutoring Systems (IJCAI 2019, CIKM 2018, AIED 2018). Before that, I was an M.Tech. student in the CS department at IIT, Delhi, having worked with Prof. Mausam and developed the state-of-the-art Open Information Extraction system (Open IE 5.0) (ACL 2017, COLING 2018). I also spent a year working as a Software Developer in the Acrobat Reader team at Adobe, India after completing by bachelors from Jadavpur University, India.
