My research interests span sub-problems of natural language processing (NLP) and their interdisciplinary applications. Prior to joining UNSW, I was a data scientist at SEEK in the AI Platform & Services team. During my postdoc, I worked on social media-based epidemic intelligence. I have also worked at startups in Australia (Notiv acquired by Dubber) and India (Cuddle incubated at Fractal Analytics). During my roles in these diverse sectors, my work has been NLP-related, and involved innovation and deployment. I hope to bring this intersectoral perspective to my current role at UNSW.
My publications are in conferences such as ACL, EMNLP, COLING, and CONLL, and in journals such as ACM Computing Surveys and PLOS One. I have been acknowledged as an outstanding reviewer at ICML, ACL and EACL. I have presented tutorials at EMNLP, AACL, ALTA and ICON. My 2018 TEDx talk 'Detecting sarcasm, combating hate' interleaved my PhD thesis with my personal journey.

The broad area of sentiment analysis is of interest to me. Sentiment analysis encompasses several sub-areas such as hate speech detection and sarcasm detection, and can be effectively applied to interdisciplinary areas like epidemic intelligence and responsible AI.
