I am a first-year CS PhD student at the University of Southern California, advised by Prof. Xiang Ren as a part of the NLP Group and INK Research Lab. My research interests lie in developing explainable and label-efficient methods for diverse NLP tasks. Find more details about it in the research tab!
Prior to this, I was an Analyst at Goldman Sachs where I worked with the Regulatory Engineering team. Even before that, I graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science from IIIT Delhi in December, 2020, where I completed my thesis as a part (and founding member) of the Laboratory for Computational Social Systems (LCS2).
Apart from pursuing my academic interests, I am extremely passionate about upliftment of women (and other minorities) in technology. I co-lead the Delhi chapter (remotely) of Women Who Code Delhi, which is an organisation that works towards diversity and inclusion of women in tech. I am a huge advocate of diversity in CS Research, and always looking for opportunities to support them! I am also a musician by passion and absolutely love singing and composing music. I’ve tried my hands at 3 instruments (and I plan to master some, explore more). Head over to the outreach tab for more details!
