About Me

I am a Data Scientist at Moz. I am interested in solving problems related to Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Specifically, I enjoy working with Information Extraction, Topic Modeling, Recommender Systems, Word Semantics, and Machine Learning. I am very passionate about increasing the representation of women in technology, and work hard towards bridging the gap.

I love languages - both Natural Languages and Programming languages. I speak English, Hindi and Gujarati fluently and bits of Korean and Spanish.

I started out as a Computer Engineer and later I got my Masters and Doctorate in Computer Science from University of Southern California (USC). I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) before I switched over from working on academic to corporate research. Here is some information about my talks, publications and service.
