Online Projects




Spring 2018-2019
1. Databases (Website)
Autumn 2018-2019
1. Natural Language Processing (Website)
2. Computer Systems (Jointly with Dr. Anirban Dasgupta and Dr. Nipun Batra)

Research interests
I study Computational Linguistics and Complex networks to understand and analyze the inherent behavior of scientific research articles. Particularly, I perform both content and network study on academic literature to solve some of the very pertinent problems like long-term impact prediction, network growth, popularity prediction, text reuse, etc.
