About Me

I am the Founder and Data Scientist at Ticary Solutions, which is a Data Science consulting firm for problems pertaining to Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I bring my experience and expertise in Information Extraction, Topic Modeling, Recommender Systems, Word Semantics, and Machine Learning to the company. 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.
