I am person with varied interest in chess, photography and machine learning!! I am inspired by anything involving logic and this motivated me to pursue a career in machine learning. I completed my Ph.D. in machine learning at University at Buffalo (SUNY UB) at the department of computer science. I am now workng as a Research Scientist at Amazon. In the past I have worked to develop machine learning algorithms for Information Extraction(IE), text analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and forensics.
I have a great passion for chess and play regularly at clubs and tournaments. You can read more about my chess activities at my chess page. I am an ardent fan of Vishy Anand.
Lastly, I am an avid photographer and I own a Canon 40D with some decent lens gear. You can see some of my work at flickr
