Short Bio


I am currently working as a Researcher in the Natural Language Processing (NLP) lab of IDSIA, Switzerland. I completed my PhD in NLP, which was primarily centered on integrating machine learning and NLP techniques for text plagiarism detection. Ongoing research work includes Biomedical Text Mining, Semantic Shift Detection and Visual Summary Generations using NLP techniques, Temporal Embeddings, Transformers and other Deep Learning models. Alongside, I am working on projects aligned with application of deep learning models in financial and question answering domains.
