I am a PhD Student at Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), National University of Ireland, Galway, working in the Unit for Natural Language Processing (UNLP) under supervision of Dr. Paul Buitelaar. My research interest revolves around Distributional Semantics, Entity Retrieval, Knowledge Access and Semantic Search.

I completed my four years B.Tech degree in Computer Science (Advisor: Prof. S.D. Samantaray) from College of Technology, Pantnagar, India where I got some working experience with various projects like implementation of Explicit Semantic Analysis (ESA) using Wikipedia dump, Spam Filtering, language identifier and Computer Chess Player. As my degree thesis, I implemented a Cross-Lingual Semantic-based Search Engine under the supervision of Prof. S.D. Samantray.

I am currently working in the PROMISE (Participative Research labOratory for Multimedia and Multilingual Information Systems Evaluation) project that deals with multimedia and multilingual information system evaluation. I also worked in MONNET (Multilingual Ontologies for Networked Knowledge) project that provides standards and technology to facilitate multilingual access to Semantic Web knowledge resources.
