About Me

Hi! I am a fourth-year Computer Science PhD candidate at National University of Singapore. I am advised by Dr. Roger Zimmermann and Dr. Soujanya Poria and supported by the President’s Graduate Fellowship, NUS.

My research is in Natural Language Processing, where I work towards improving Contextual and Multimodal Affective Computing. My work primarily spans across Emotion Recognition for Conversations, Multimodal Sentiment Analysis, and presently in Open-Domain Dialog Systems.

Previously, I completed my undergrads in Computer Science from NIT Warangal, India where I also received the Institute Gold Medal for best academic performance in the undergraduate course.
