I am a PhD candidate at CSAIL, advised by Prof. Regina Barzilay, and a member of the MIT NLP group. My research interests are in language grounding and deep reinforcement learning. My goal is to build intelligent agents that learn to handle the dynamics of the world through experience and existing human knowledge (ex. text). I am excited to explore and utilize the core function of natural language as a compact medium for organizing world knowledge.

I have also worked on machine comprehension and computational morphology.

I obtained a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Madras in 2012.
